9. Public Comment 

, < 

James Bryant stated that he has never seen as divisive a situation as what is ahead of us. Muni has 
created sacred cows. He expressed hope that the SFMTA take a close look at the layoffs. 

Frank Lara. Answer Coalition, stated that they are opposed to taking money from people who can't 
afford it. Not everyone can be as handsomely rewarded as SFMTA administrators. People need these 
jobs to survive and they shouldn't be used as an ATM. 

Adell Scott urged the SFMTA to rescind the layoff notices issued to traffic checkers and do something 
about Prop. F employees 

Dominic Garrett stated that parking control officers (PCO's) assist the SFMTA and that these cuts 
haven't been thought out. PCO's bring in the most revenue and they pay for themselves. The SFMTA 
will lose $6-7 million in revenue as a result. 

Mark Gruberg stated that the industry is waiting for Ms. Hayashi's final recommendations. This is a 
sad story. The Mayor and the SFMTA Exec. Director promised to protect Prop. K. 

Bebe Pubill stated that the bean counters are creating a problem. They have lost five PCO's to the 
Mayor's pilot projects. These five have averaged $75,000 in revenue per week. 

Elias Georgopoulos stated that PCO's are front line emergency responders. By cutting 24, the SFMTA 
will be losing over $8 million per year in revenue. PCO's pay for themselves. 

Leah Berlanga, SEIU, requested that the Board consider the layoffs. The cuts are irresponsible. PCO's 
create a lot of money. These layoffs will wipe out the entire graveyard shift so the agency will be 
rolling out filthy, unhealthy buses. They are trying to address the deficit but the SFMTA isn't sending 
the decision makers to the table. 



en Pitocchi, SEIU, requested a 60-day extension to the layoff notices. These layoffs will have a 
de\ astating effect on those being released. Mr. Pitocchi presented a letter for distribution to the Board. 

I [erbert Werner stated that he is seeing higher bus fares and less service. Everything is hitting the skids 
and u is worse than it was four years ago. 

Jim Corrigan stated that disabled placards are being abused. The Fire Department gets free parking all 
> ear. 

Lourdes Alarcon expressed concern that by cutting car cleaners, mothers and children will be riding 
dirtier buses. 

Flor Ramos stated that the cost of the fast pass makes it hard to get to work and single mothers can't 
afford to buy them. 

Branton Burke wondered why he has to come to a Board meeting to discuss day to day service issues. 
He has been asking staff to address the same problem on the 37 Corbett for over a year and would like 
to get it fixed. 

Andre Spearman discussed service and service delivery. Workers provide the service every day. The 
Board is responsible for the fiscal situation. They need to have people at the table who can solve the 
problem. Staff has made up their mind to lay people off and just pretend that they're interested. 

Bob Planthold stated that there is a problem with the distribution of the passes for the BART-Muni Fast 
Pass experiment. Some who are getting the pass didn't apply. MAAC members were told they would 
get a pass even though they didn't all apply. 

Andre Norman stated that car cleaners are on the front line. They clean up the public's filth. Cutting 
car cleaners will mean that the public will board a dirty bus. Cuts should first be made at the top. 

Tariq Mehmood stated that at the Embarcadero Centers taxis are allowed to pick up passengers in the 
transit lane. They get a ticket. He asked where they should pick people up if they can't do so in the 
transit lane. 

Maria Luz Torre stated that her children take Muni buses to go to school. They are paying more but 
riding on a dirty bus. The lowest paid workers keep buses clean, safe and running on time. She urged 
the SFMTA to find a real solution that will keep people employed and safe. 

Dennis Lee asked the Board to reconsider saving co-worker's jobs. PCO's stop citing cars when it gets 
dark in order to stay safe. 

James Elliott stated that car cleaners are understaffed. Car cleaners provide for everyone's health and 
safety and they put themselves at risk to keep riders safe. The job is hard and will get even harder. 



Emile Lawrence stated that he is disgusted with the SFMTA Board. He has delivered a letter to Police 
Chief Gascon and the SFMTA about the cost of citations. They're in the stratosphere. 

Francisco Da Costa stated that layoffs are heartbreaking and there is a way to resolve this if we work 
together. The best way is to cut the salaries at the top.

Barry Taranto stated that establishing a cab stand at these locations would be very helpful given the 
number of restaurants in the area. He asked that the items be put these on hold until staff can come 
back with a plan to install a cab stand. He also expressed concern about the status of the taxi detail. 

Vice Chairman McCray requested an update on the status of cab stands. 

On motion to approve Item 10.2 AA and BB: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka 

RESOLUTION 10-002

REGULAR CALENDAR 

I 1 . Approving proposed increase to fines and penalties for various disabled parking violations and 
amending Transportation Code, Division II, Section 303 to reflect the increased fines and penalties which 
\\ ill take immediate effect. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution, amendments and 
fact sheet.) (Sonali Bose) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Bob Planthold stated that this is too small a step and that the Board is being too soft. This is about the 
ability of people with disabilities to travel easily and safely. These fines should be a massive deterrent to 
people and shouldn't be used as a revenue source. He urged the Board to revisit this in six months and 
expressed concern about increased assaults on PCO's as a result of the increases. 

Barry Taranto stated that this is important legislation. PCO's issue tickets to taxicab drivers who assist a 
disabled person in a blue zone. The PCO should first ascertain if they are assisting someone with a 
disability before issuing a ticket.

(Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution and list of contractors.) (Sonali Bose) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 



Andre Spearman stated that this is an idea that SEIU floated to save money so they are excited that the 
SFMTA pursued it. It's important to discuss creative ideas together so this is not an isolated incident. 
The SFMTA has already done a tremendous job with balancing the budget and finding creative solutions 
but the right people need to be at the table. 

RESOLUTION 10-009 

On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka

8. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 

Daniel Murphy, chairman, Citizen's Advisory Council, presented the report. 

9. Public Comment 

Bob Planthold expressed concern over the lack of quality decision making. The Board has ducked 
issues such as moving Muni onto Mission Street. The Board hasn't earned the public's trust. 

Steve Pitocchi, SEIU 1021, stated that a resolution of the budget issues will require a reasonable 
solution. The agency will save $300,000 in one month by not going forward with layoffs. He 
urged the Board to extend layoffs until February 28. 

Adell Scott stated that the SFMTA can't depend on bad behavior by the public to balance the 
budget. He urged the Board to extend layoffs until all avenues have been explored. 

James Bryant stated that SEIU delivered additional money through the passage of Prop. A. 
Members wanted to help save their jobs but now car cleaners, clerical workers, and custodians are 
losing their jobs. He asked the Board to look at SEIU's alternatives. 

Leah Berlanga, SEIU 1021, stated that they have been working hard to identify efficiencies and 
other revenue. Laying off fare collectors is a bad idea because buses don't have enough people to 
collect coins. When cash boxes get full operators will have to let people ride for free. Ms. 
Berlanga requested an opportunity to help before drastic cuts are implemented. 

Mary Walker expressed concern over the layoffs and budget cuts. Fare gates are not modernized 
nor equipped to accept fares. Revenue staff is needed to sell tickets until systems can be upgraded. 
There needs to be revenue support at the Embarcadero station for events such as the Emerald 
Bowl. 



Vera 1 lailc spoke about the difficulties of living on a fixed income in San Francisco. Seniors 
face a rapidly shrinking income and they depend on Muni. 

Andre Norman stated that health and safety will be compromised if buses aren't cleaned. Car 
cleaners disinfected buses to keep them clean after the flu epidemic happened. People won't ride 
filthy buses which will result in lost revenue. 

Frank Black spoke about Proposition E which he said, stressed the system, staff performance and 
customer service. All three will be affected by employee cuts. We don't have enough people now 
to do the work and we'll lose more money if people are laid off. 

Craig Martin, Convenient Parking, discussed the request for proposals (RFP) for management of 
parking garages. It appears that someone is exerting undue influence over this process. It seems 
that the prior decision to go forward is being held hostage. He asked the Board to review the 
situation. Staff casted its' net and got its' results, now it is time to move forward. 

Fred Bekele stated the issue with the RFP is that one company isn't happy with his company and 
with the award so they're trying to block it. We're ready to go forward. We have rightfully won 
this RFP and there is no reason not to go forward. 

Simon Brown stated that the RFP system should be maintained. It provides a fair and translucent 
process for participation. Compromising is short sighted, won't guarantee that the best 
individuals will get the job, and that minorities will receive a level playing field. The bid should 
be awarded. 

Charlie Walker stated that nothing ever comes from testifying before the Board. Nobody did 
anything after he commented about the left turn signs on Third Street. Nobody has thought 
about putting parking lots in the Bayview. 42% of black men in San Francisco are unemployed 
and then, when one is involved in a parking lot, you say you're going to sell the lot. Something 
is wrong with this. Only white people understand how the system works. 

Stephen LaMell stated that he received a layoff notice. He's been working at the SFMTA for 
two years and is opposed to these cuts. There's a lot of bureaucratic red tape at the top that can 
be cut. The people of San Francisco will be ill served by the cuts and the fact that they'll have to 
ride dirtier buses. Most of the cuts are to people of color. 

Tariq Mehmood stated that transit lanes and forward facing cameras are causing trouble for cab 
drivers. There is no place to stop at the Embarcadero Centers. Taxi drivers are getting ticket 
after ticket for doing their job. 

David Pilpel stated that Norm Rolfe was contentious and passionate and not mean spirited. He 
expressed interest in a report that followed up on the July 2009 West Portal incident. The hiring 
of a Deputy Executive Director at a considerable salary is an incredibly bad idea. The agency 
should cancel the Central Subway Project. He asked if the agreement with the Golden Gate 



Bridge District required action by the Board of Supervisors. The agency's photographer is being 
laid off but she does good job, including maintaining the agency's valuable photo collection. 
The proposition that established the SFMTA is now ten years old and there should be some 
reflection on how the experiment turned out. 

Tommy McGowan stated that staff has been cut so that, on the weekend, there is one person to 
clean vehicles. Public safety has been cast away. The Board should come to a yard and see how 
the buses are being trashed. 

Lourdes Alarcon expressed concern about health issues with buses being dirty because car 
cleaners are being laid off. This will affect children and seniors. She urged the Board to not lay 
off car cleaners. 

Fran Taylor stated that workers have been treated with the same kind of contempt as the riders. 
Riders aren't customers, they are hostages. Every minute added to the schedule will add time 
and more customers. It will also increase commute time. Many low paid workers use the F line 
to get to work. 

Bud Hazelkorn, UTW, discussed the disappearance of taxi enforcement. Before, when a taxi 
driver was attacked, bulletins would have been posted at all cab companies that gave details 
about the suspect and provide information about protocol. The elimination of the taxi detail is a 
travesty. 

Marlene Tran stated that Muni's TEP didn't involve community input during the critical stages. 
Some people only found out about the changes after they were approved. The city's serious 
fiscal crisis hits low income people hard. Money was wasted by needlessly renumbering buses. 

Giovanna Soto stated that she is scared that she'll get infected because the SFMTA is laying off 
bus cleaners. Students will pass on infections. Big groups of kids take Muni for field trips and 
there's a lot of dirt on buses. 

Louis Pillon stated that historically public transportation was wonderful. It was done by horse 
and carriage and it attracted tourists. In past two decades, transportation has become a blight. 
The issues within the SFMTA are institutional. He has not received a penny from the SFMTA 
since he was rear ended by a 71 line bus. 

Joe Mirabile, UTW, stated that the Mayor said that he would protect Prop. K and respect the will 
of the voters but that hasn't happened. The SFMTA is going to turn the cab industry upside 
down. There is a lack of initiative and imagination that will leave the industry at the mercy of 
unsympathetic people. 

Reginald Drake stated that the Muni Revenue division is planning to close the place that sells 
passes at the Montgomery Station. That place makes money. Buses are filthy. We need to get 
decision makers to sit with SEIU to rescind layoffs so we can get on the right track. 



Abe Dabis stated that employees have done all they can to help the SFMTA but the SFMTA is 
about to make a bad decision that will put PCO's into a crisis situation. PCO's bring in revenue. 
Those who are being laid off work on Saturdays and Sundays. The SFMTA isn't seeing the big 
picture. 

Blake Derby stated that San Francisco is being touted as a green city. Muni isn't sustainable but 
taxis are. Income could be gained by collecting fares. The top paid person shouldn't be paid 
more than four times what the lowest paid person is paid. If everyone who makes over $100,000 
took a year off the budget crisis would be solved. The SFMTA hasn't done anything about 
illegal limos. 

Wayne Basker stated that he is scheduled to be laid off on Friday. There is something 
fundamentally flawed in the accounting that has been provided to the Board. PCO's facilitate the 
safe, continuous flow of traffic during peak periods. There is a depth and broad scope to what 
PCO's do. PCO's help keep the city running smoothly and they are a good investment. 

Barry Korengold stated that the job of a cab driver is one of the most misunderstood jobs. They 
pick up strangers, dodge drunk drivers and red-light runners. Last week a driver was stabbed. 
Nobody is enforcing illegal limos and the taxi detail was eliminated. We need to have staff in 
order to deal with our issues and come up with solutions. 

Francoise Spiegelman stated that San Francisco cab drivers are ambassadors to visitors to the 
city. They would like to be respected for what they offer. 

Ed Healy stated that taxi drivers can't do their job if they're arbitrarily being given tickets. 
Dealing with crimes against cab drivers is a low priority for policy makers. 

Mark Gruberg stated that information about incidents should be provided to all dispatchers so it 
can be given to drivers. This is the third time that a really serious taxi matter has been pushed 
behind another issue on the agenda. He requested that taxi issues be scheduled at the top of the 
agenda or scheduled for a special meeting. 

Katherine Roberts stated that parking control officers have a hard job and need to be 
acknowledged. They need to be empowered to ticket people. If they ticketed violators, we 
would have the money to fix the budget deficit. 

Tone Lee stated that San Franciscans are spoiled. Costs are going up. People want more but 
want to pay less. It will cost you two dollars to get on a subway in New York City and another 
two to get off. He stated that he would clean buses if given a free fast pass. 

Emil Lawrence stated that the SFMTA Board doesn't know how to cut the deficit or cut red ink. 
Cab drivers are not making what they made two years ago. Layoffs should start at the top. 
Pensions should be cut at the top. Payroll should be cut by 35% or more. There are more than 
enough meter maids for two counties. 



Peter Kirby expressed concern about what may happen to the taxi medallion wait list. He is 
opposed to any reform. The current system works well. The proposed reforms will diminish 
opportunities for drivers and will kill the dream of many who are hoping to get a medallion. 

Tom Radulovich, Livable City, stated that last year they urged the Board of Supervisors to 
overturn the budget. There was a deal struck with Mr. Ford to bring forward a proposal to 
extend meter hours. Prop. A gave the SFMTA a strong mandate to reduce greenhouse gas 
emissions. The current policies to raise fares and cut service will drive people away from public 
transit and won't get us to the goal of reducing emissions by 20%. 

Ron Fishman stated that cameras on Muni buses are used to ticket cab drivers. UTW told him 
that cab drivers have the right to use bus stops to pick up and drop off people. He urged the 
Board not to ticket drivers who use bus zones or for parking in driveways to pick up passengers.

On motion to approve the Consent Calendar: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka 

REGULAR CALENDAR 

1 1 . Presentation and discussion regarding the FY 10 year-end budget. (Explanatory documents 
include a slide presentation.) (Sonali Bose) 

Sonali Bose, chief financial officer, presented the staff report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Bob Planthold stated that the presentation lacks enough information to make good decisions. 
The job of finding $2 million in savings from work orders is not the job of the controller. It is 
the job of the SFMTA. He questioned the SFPD work order and why the SFPD can charge the 
SFMTA for doing the job they should be doing. He has been sending e-mails to staff about why 
fare boxes are broken. The figures presented have been made up and are without any substance. 

Kevin Carroll, Fisherman's Wharf Community Benefit District, expressed opposition to raising 
the F line fare to $5. Workers can't afford fast passes. This won't benefit employees, visitors, or 
residents. 

Keith Saggers expressed opposition to raising F line fares. Parking meter rates should be raised. 
The Translink card works and should be pushed more. 

Donna Willmott, Planning for Elders, expressed opposition to raising the discount pass. Seniors 
and peoples with disabilities have been subject to income and benefit cuts. This would be 
crushing for people who have limited transportation options. Transportation is a collective 
resource. 

Robin Clarke stated that Muni is broken. There appears to be a systemic problem with Mum 
and change needs to start at the top, with the Board. The economy is just an excuse. 

James Sellman stated that as a car driver, he can do what he wants but as a Muni rider, he has to 
pay and he gets service cuts and fare increases. Drivers get coddled. Muni riders get punished. 



Arthur Gonzales stated that he doesn't understand how the SFMTA will save money by fixing 85 
buses in southern California and not having in-house mechanics rebuild transmissions and 
differentials. SFMTA mechanics would do it better and faster. 

Henri Pan stated that he is outraged that the Board is raising fares and cutting service. Seniors 
already have difficulty living in San Francisco so increasing the discount pass to $30 is a bad 
idea. Drivers should be charged. 

Sprague Terplan stressed that climate change imperils everyone. Increases to fares will hurt 
families. Instead the SFMTA could offer a discount price to families who travel on Muni with 
their children Increasing the cost of the pass will drive people to cars. 

David Pilpel suggested that the Board publicize recent data on ridership. The package that was 
presented doesn't seem like a coherent plan. It's desperate and sad that we have to make these 
choices now. It's unrealistic that schedule changes will occur in two months. 

Sue Vaughan asked about the plan to make the city truly a "Transit First" city. Parking meter 
hours should be expanded. The status quo is unsustainable. 

Gerald Cauthen stated that many recognize the tough spot that the SFMTA is in. Muni used to be 
a key element in San Francisco's economy. The city is scrambling to find billions for a useless 
subway into Chinatown. "Transit First" is nowhere close to being implemented. He expressed 
support for any effort made to redirect capital funds to meet emergency operating needs. 

Emil Lawrence wondered why there aren't copies of the budget available. He stated that he 
hasn't seen any cuts to salaries. There is no accountability. He has been passed over for a 
budget analyst's job. 

John Murphy stated that he is a regular rider. The proposal is the opposite of the "Transit First" 
policy. We're "nickel and diming" riders and laying off low level staff. The SFMTA needs to 
offer good service for a nominal cost for the public benefit. 

Herbert Weiner stated that management needs to be reformed. Incompetent manager should be 
fired. It's time to draw a line in the sand. 

Tariq Mehmood stated that he supports raising the F line rate by $5 because people will choose 
to take a taxi instead. Half the meters are expired on every block which means that a lot of 
money is being wasted. Parking Control Officers should be increased and should be urged to 
write as many tickets as they can. 

Andre Spearman, SEIU 1021, expressed concern about current and future budgets. He stated 
that he was insulted by the statement that ED/CEO Ford has met with SEIU and that proposals 
are being considered. The relationship is damaged. They would prefer to be in a more positive 
role to figure out both short and long term solutions. 

8 



1 nula Chapman stated that Muni seems to be unmanageable. The SFMTA should look to federal 
personnel regulations as a model for how to deal with personnel. The biggest way to save money 
is to end the central subway project. The SFMTA is on the verge of a meltdown. A tremendous 
amount of money is wasted on 31 1 calls. Muni riders don't have computers at home so they 
can't ect transit information. 



£> v 



Joe Mirabile called the idea of taxing cars the most creative idea he has heard. Yanking money 
out of the taxi industry will damage the industry. The SFMTA should go after creative ideas 
instead of turning the cab industry upside down. 

John Han stated that passengers who don't want to pay their fare will go to the second car of a 
two car train. Muni's inability to collect fares is a problem. Instead of laying off people, the 
SFMTA should add a fare taker for those cars. 

Dave Snyder expressed concern about the SFMTA' s commitment to a safe public transit system. 
The Bridge Board will have to make difficult decisions and they will have to raise fares and cut 
service but staff gave their Board a menu of choices to debate in a public and deliberative way. 
SFMTA staff should provide choices. 

Michael Kurpieski stated that the Board should consider the medallion plan 

Dave Schneider asked for an explanation for why the Central Subway project is going ahead. 
As a matter of priority, a line should have been built down Geary first. 

12. Presentation and discussion regarding options to reform the taxi industry. (Explanatory 
documents include a slide presentation.) (Debra Johnson) 

Christiane Hayashi, deputy director, Taxi and Accessible Services, presented the staff report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Joe Mirabile stated that you should tell people that you're about to raise the meter rates. 
Borrowing $250,000 to buy a medallion will mean that borrowers will have to pay $1600-$ 1800 
per month for a long time. As meter rates and gates increase, it will guarantee an increase in the 
turnover rate of cab drivers and the city will lose experienced drivers. A Public Necessity and 
Convenience hearing hasn't been mentioned. 

Christopher Fulkerson stated that the sale of medallions is akin to the medieval practice by popes 
of selling salvation. Selling medallions will result in a corporate structure and will result in a 
loss to San Francisco. Medallions are not a commodity. 

Bill Mounsey stated that the Board doesn't care about taxi drivers or their business. The Board 
is racist. The city would break down without cab drivers. Medallions are not a commodity. 



Mark Gruberg stated that there are dozens of unanswered questions. This isn't a proposal, it's 
just an outline of a proposal. They need to see the plan in writing. This isn't reversible. This 
started as, and still is, a revenue-driven policy. The public and drivers aren't being served. 

Bud Hazelkorn stated that banks stopped lending money and are still not lending money. Yellow 
and Luxor will lend money but they will take your medallion if you miss a payment. This 
proposal eliminates the only reason that cab drivers stick around, that is, to receive a pension 
through a medallion. 

Charles Rathbone, Luxor, stated that Ms. Hayashi has earned their trust and confidence. They 
don't want this plan but they are pleased to support this plan without reservation and will use 
their talents and resources to make the plan a success. 

Tariq Mehmood stated that he supported the sale of medallions five years ago. Ms. Hayashi 
closed the waiting list without notice. She should have provided notice to drivers in advance. 

(Director Lee left the meeting.) 

Ben Valis stated that the system in place is a great system. He expressed appreciation for the 
town hall meetings and for crafting a somewhat equitable plan. The plan has some flaws and 
will slow things down. Being on the wait list gives cab drivers the chance to have the American 
dream. 

Saam Aryan stated that he had been a strong opponent but Ms Hayashi convinced him to change 
sides. 

Ron Fishman stated that medallions were supposed to be issued to people on the waiting list but 
there are 80 that have never been issued. Issuing them to people rather than to cab companies 
would result in better customer service. A 20% transfer fee on the sale of medallions is not fair. 
The transfer fee in New York City is 4%. A medallion sells for $80,000 in Chicago. 

David Barlow stated that he has lost $60 waiting for this meeting to occur. He expressed 
opposition to the proposal. Thousands of cab drivers are being neglected and mistreated. We 
don't get health care or sick leave and we get shaken down every time we come to work. 

Ed Healy stated most of those who are complaining now didn't attend the meetings. Ms. 
Hayashi did a fantastic job given the variety of ideas presented. The plan addresses older drivers 
currently driving and those on the list. This proposal is more practical and is possible. 

Emil Lawrence stated that the Board is sucking his blood and eating his flesh. Cab drivers have 
no pension and no unemployment. This plan hasn't been voted on by the public. The Board is 
doing the Mayor's bidding. 



10 



Mychael Monroe stated that San Francisco is the only city where you can't buy a medallion. The 
plan is well thought out. Limousines take 50% of our business illegally. If you stop the illegal 
limousines, you can issue more medallions. 

Blake Derby stated that he appreciates Ms. Hayashi and hopes that everyone can get what they 
\\ ant. The money should go back to the industry. 

Francoise Spiegelman stated that she has been waiting for a medallion for more than 20 years 
and is now number 27 on the list. She expressed hope that solutions can be found for problems 
facing the industry. 

Barry Korengold expressed opposition to the sale of medallions to fix the city's budget woes 
however most have been convinced by Ms. Hayashi that being part of this plan would be 
beneficial so they are going along. He expressed hope that the pilot program would provide 
information about affordability for the average cab driver. 100% financial assistance must be 
provided and an alternative exit strategy must be offered. 

Dan Hinds, National Cab, commended Ms. Hayashi for making herself available to everyone and 
for adjusting her thinking in response. This is a work in progress. Prop. K is flawed. Elderly 
drivers have no way to exit. This is an attempt to allow elderly and disabled drivers to sell to 
people on the wait list at a fixed price. There are advantages for them. 

Rua Graffis stated that no one would condone a developed country taking the resources of a third 
world country. Cab drivers have no benefits. This proposal helps a few medallion holders but 
not those without. The plan puts those workers in jeopardy. Ms. Graffis presented UTW's 
proposal. 

Dave Schneider recommended that the SFMTA proceed with the plan. He expressed 
appreciation to staff for being proactive but added that the plan could be tweaked. With regard 
to the recent stabbing, if the industry had centralized dispatch, information would have gone out 
to all cab drivers. 

Jim Gillespie, Yellow Cab Coop, commended staff for over 175 hours of outreach. All factions 
appreciate these efforts. Speakers opposed to this are afraid of the unknown. Other cities think 
it's crazy how we operate things here. If the city could eliminate the illegal limousine business, 
the number of medallions could be increased 

Jane Bolig, SF Taxi Coalition, stated that this was a plan derived by consensus. Those opposed 
to it had opportunities to participate but they opted out. We all gave something up to achieve 
this. This keeps medallions in the hands of drivers and gives younger drivers the chance to get a 
permit. It gives older and disabled drivers the chance to move out and it provides revenue for the 
SFMTA. Ms. Bolig expressed hope that the Board will allow it to go forward. 



11 



John Han expressed support for the single owner option in the proposal. He commented that 
whether you maintain Prop K or move toward transferability, good drivers won't be able to get a 
medallion. This is supposed to be a business where drivers are self-employed but they are faced 
with restrictions from owning their own business. They don't have benefits or other protections. 

Victoria Lansdown stated that burdening an overworked, underpaid cab driver with Muni's 
deficit is unconscionable. She added that overall the process has been sound and she supports 
the plan. This is making the best of a bad situation. 

Carl Macmurdo, Medallion Holder Association, expressed support for the program and 
applauded staff for their work. This will allow older drivers to exit the industry. It's also an 
opportunity for people who are lower on the list. 

Mike Spain expressed appreciation to Ms. Hayashi for her work considering all of the forces 
involved in the industry. Many are protecting their own self interests. Nobody ever gives up 
their medallion. Due process and the ADA law have prevented the city from revoking even one 
taxi medallion. 

Mary McGuire commended Ms. Hayashi for listening but doesn't think that it's a good idea for 
the SFMTA to get into the business of leasing medallions. The fund for drivers is well 
intentioned but before a new one is created, the Board should find out what happened to revenue 
from the old fund. The 60 medallions that the SFMTA are holding should be reissued. 

Tone Lee stated that they would like to see more aggressive reform of the industry. Drivers want 
to own medallions. It's hard to earn money in the business. 3000 drivers support 1000 
medallion holders. 

Michael Gibbons stated that selling medallions may put drivers into debt and create hardship. 
$250,000 is an arbitrary figure. It's hard to assess the real value. San Francisco can't be 
compared with other cities because Prop. K is unique. 

Jack Trad stated that he lobbied for Prop. K. He attended the town hall meetings with Ms. 
Hayashi and thinks she has done a fantastic job. 

Ali Shen expressed support for the sale of medallions. All medallions should be sold to people 
on the waiting list. This will help all drivers. 

Michael Santee urged the Board to approve the proposal. There was poor foresight when Prop. 
K was created. This proposal considers everyone and is extremely fair. If cab drivers pay their 
taxes, they'll have social security. 

Yossedek Desta stated that Prop K is that it hasn't been operating under the principals of free 
enterprise. Mr. Desta stated that he disagrees with anything that doesn't comply with the 
principals of free enterprise. He requested a copy of the proposal in writing.

1 )i rector Beach requested that staff provide a report regarding what they are doing and what can 
be done regarding illegal limousine service. 

1 3. Approving Amendment #3 to the Appointment and Compensation Agreement between the 

( ity and County of San Francisco and Nathaniel P. Ford, Sr. to reduce the compensation paid to 
l-xccutive Director/CEO Ford by 2% of his current base salary; extend the term of the contract 
through January 16, 2014; defer award of incentive compensation for FY2009; reduce Mr. Ford's 
entitlement to severance pay, and increase Mr. Ford's executive leave by five days per fiscal 
year. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution and amendment.) (Roberta 
Boomer) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel stated that extending the contact is not warranted at this time. It would be useful for 
Board members to serve on the TJPA and JPB Boards. Other agencies appoint policy makers 
and not agency heads. Mr. Pilpel requested that information regarding the cumulative total of 
benefits and leave time be disclosed.

Manager, Color Curb Program, Sustainable Streets; Lewis Ames, Finance Manager, Central 
Subway Project, Capital Programs and Construction. 

8. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 
No report. 

9. Public Comment 

Mark Gruberg asked that the taxi issue be pushed down the road or scheduled for a special meeting. 
This will permanently tie up industry revenues in a mountain of debt that won't result in benefits 
for drivers. He will provide his objections in writing. 

Jane Bolig stated that this process has been more than fair. Issues were aired in front of everybody 
and at least one of Mr. Gruberg' s ideas has been incorporated into the proposal. The industry is on 
board with the plan. 

Mark Gleason, Local 665, stated that they are supportive of proposals to remove free parking in 
garages. He invited the Board to a press conference. 

David Pilpel questioned whether the Board had been apprised of the revenue generating proposals 
presented over the years. He urged the SFMTA to bring forward possible ballot measures so there 
is time to consider them. He also noted that there will be a number of senior employees who will 
be retiring soon which will result in a loss of leadership and knowledge about the system. 

Barry Taranto stated Ms. Hayashi had done a fantastic job of uniting the taxi industry and coming 
up with proposals that many can live with. The proposal provides an exit strategy. He expressed 
concern over the transfer of oversight of the taxi detail from Ms. Hayashi to Jim Dougherty. 

Craig Martin stated that he doesn't understand how the process for the contract for garage 
management has changed. It appears that a current garage operator influenced the process. It was a 
fair and open process and the contracts should be awarded. 

Charlie Walker asked what the process was for the garage contract and that the matter be agendized. 
Muni promised off-street parking on Third Street. Things happen when black people are involved. 

Fred Bekele stated that had his company been well connected they would have been awarded the 
garage contract. If added that if he had known that there would have been prejudice, he wouldn't 
have bid on it. The item should be put on the agenda.

REGULAR CALENDAR 

1 1 . Presentation and discussion regarding the FY 10 year-end budget including changes to Muni 
service. (Explanatory documents include a slide presentation.) (Sonali Bose) 

Sonali Bose, chief financial officer, and Julie Kirschbaum, manager, Service Planning, presented 
the staff report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Bob Planthold stated this is a war against people with disabilities and seniors and it's 
unconscionable to double the price of a fast pass when those living on limited incomes don't get 
cost of living increases. The Board is not being good stewards and is not showing thought or 
analysis in public. Going from $15 to $30 will reduce mobility. Both buses today had broken fare 
boxes. The SFMTA should go after drivers. 

Jazzie Collins stated that every year there's a deficit that the public has to pay for. Neither riders 
nor employees are at fault. When someone's monthly income is $800 and rent is $600, a fast pass 
isn't affordable. He urged the Board to reduce their salary. 

David Keck asked the Board to consider alternates before increasing the price for the disabled and 
seniors. 

Eric Chase stated that while he is sympathetic to the state stealing transit funds, this budget is 
putting too much of the burden on riders and not enough on drivers. There is $17.5 million 
available from the Airport Connector funds. The Board is violating it's discretion by not exploring 
parking meter hours. Mayor Newsom has a poor understanding of the Transit First policy. 

Irwin Lum expressed opposition to fare increases and reductions to service. Buses will be more 
crowded and people will be passed by. Street cleaning, work orders, extending parking meter hours 
should be reconsidered. He stated that layoffs will result in less reliability and more breakdowns. 
Service will be killed in the long run. 

Marc Christensen stated that he is opposed to increasing fares, reducing service and increasing the 
cost of residential parking permits. Instead, he suggested that the SFMTA look at enforcement and 
cut backs in management costs. The use of cell phones should be curtailed and all unnecessary 
overtime should be cut. The cost for parking citations should increase. 

Bruce Allison stated that the proposal to increase discount fares is a 300% increase in one year. If 
this passes, the SFMTA may be an increase in artificially made passes. Non-residents who go to 
nightclubs should be charged. 

Tom Rubens spoke in opposition to increases to the pass for seniors and disables. 

5 



Ernestine Patterson stated that doubling the amount of the senior discount pass removes the feeling 
of independence and flexibility. It is thoughtless to ask people who are visually impaired to pay 
more. Don't raise fares 

Randall Glock stated that wait times will increase and wheelchair users will have a tough time. 

Frank Lara addressed the Board in Spanish. 

Forrest Schmidt stated that there must be tough decisions made. This is a model for how to wreck a 
transit system. Seniors will have to pony up double the amount of money. The rich aren't paying 
their way and are being bailed out. The poor and working class are paying more. 

Kathleen Mayeda stated that people recognize that these are difficult times but the $30 cost should 
be reconsidered. Seniors can't afford it and won't buy food or medicine as a result. They will be 
isolated and will rot at home. It is crucial to figure out an alternative. 

John Connolly stated that he can't afford to pay the proposed increases. 

Briana Beker stated that this is a crisis and she can't afford to pay the proposed increases. 

Lisamaria Martinez stated that these actions will take away her independence. People with 
disabilities depend on public transit. She urged the Board not to increase fares 

Patricia Jones stated that it would be impossible to pay for the increases. Salaries should be cut. 

Bobby Bogan stated that the nation is in an economic crisis that is far from over. These proposals 
should be stopped today and realistic solutions need to be presented, such as high salaries. 

Raymond Vega urged the Board to freeze the cost of passes and to repair the stuff that the SFMTA 
has now rather than build new things. This is no way to live. 

Jeanne Lynch stated that these proposals are genocide for the elderly and disabled. Seniors can't 
shop now because the SFMTA stopped running the Ocean Beach bus. She urged the Board to re- 
examine this budget and eliminate what is being done to seniors and the disabled. 

Elizabeth Dawson stated that transportation is a collective resource and right. Seniors and people 
with disabilities need affordable transportation. The SFMTA will be judged by how it treats the 
most vulnerable citizens. 

Robert Weber stated that doubling the fares will make vulnerable people bear the brunt of the lack 
of foresight by the financial sector. These actions will encourage criminal behavior. He urged the 
Board to have compassion for those less fortunate before balancing the budget on the backs of those 
who can't afford it. 



Clifford Phillips asked the Board not to raise the cost of the fast pass. The increase is too much. 

Francesca Rosa stated that they try to help people become independent. The disabled pass helps 
them help their disabled clients live a better life. Please do not raise this rate as it would affect 
disabled clients in a serious way. Those on fixed incomes are having a tough time in this economy. 

Oscar Faramidan stated that this is not the right time to increase fares. People are suffering and 
their daily lives are affected. The voice of the people is the voice of god. 

Lolita Tanner wondered why there is a problem with a budget. The poorest people are always the 
first to be impacted. Ms. Tanner invited the Board spend a week with their clients and seniors and 
see how hard it is for them to use public transportation. Increasing fares will make it more difficult 
for them and will negatively impact their pockets. 

Day Chionsini asked the Board not to raise the price for seniors, kids and people with disabilities. 

James Chionsini expressed opposition to fare increases for seniors and people with disabilities. 
People rely on Muni and must decide whether to buy food, medicine or a fast pass. Seniors are 
already hurting. These proposals are disproportionately hitting seniors and people with disabilities. 

Donna Willmott stated that the outpouring of sentiment from affected consumers should convince 
the Board that these proposals are unconscionable. They will impact people's lives, health and 
safety and basic essentials for living. Tripling the cost of the pass is beyond the pale and should be 
reconsidered. 

Gena Lynn Luna stated that it's not fair to raise fares. The SFMTA needs to crack down on people 
who board through the rear door. Buses are overcrowded. The SFPD should focus on crime on the 
streets and not on Muni. 

Thomas Luong stated that Muni is important to the disabled community. Reducing schedules and 
increasing fares will affect lives. They can't afford it and have already suffered from the recent 
cuts. 

Jamie Wong stated that people need to spend their money on rent and groceries and they can't 
afford the increase. Don't increase the passes for people with disabilities and seniors. 

Sue Vaughan stated that the Mayor implored the Board to not expand the hours of meter operation 
but he is wrong. The status quo is not sustainable. We are at the beginning of the economic crisis 
and based on a report to the Board of Supervisors, we are going into an economic contraction due to 
the change from reliance on hydrocarbons. 

Bonita Abram stated that she doesn't want her budget to be cut. She needs her money to pay her 
other bills. 

John Coulter stated that it's hard to take the 14 Mission and he is sick and tired of budget cuts. 

7 



Patrick Flannery stated that he can't afford to pay the increase. While he wants to operate within 
the realms of the law, if forced to, he will ride illegally. Integrity is lacking in these decisions. 

Anthony Castro stated that buses are overcrowded, operators are rude and people ride for free but 
his main concern is the increase to the discount fare for people with disabilities. They can barely 
afford to pay $15. Doubling it will force people to board without paying and to steal transfers. 

Don Baker stated that cuts to the 17 Park Merced line will strand students who attend evening 
classes and people who work the swing shift. The discount fare is being tripled in a short amount 
of time. Staff should look somewhere else. 

Barry Taranto stated that the SFMTA needs to look for more revenue and not look to cuts. The 
report on Parking Control Officers and the number of citations issued was very interesting. He 
urged the Board to look at the deployment structure and to put PCO's on Muni routes and where 
people are double parking in the evenings. Meter hours should be extended. It is unfair to charge a 
transaction fee for people who go to the Customer Service Center. 

Lionel Sanford stated that his only means of transportation is Muni. He stated that increasing the 
discount pass to $30 is unfair and outrageous. Those who are lowest on the economic ladder 
shouldn't bear the burden. Mr. Ford should be asked to give back at least half of his salary raises. 
He asked the Board to take old people into consideration. 

Tom Lam stated that he can't afford an increase to the cost of a pass because he has to pay rent and 
buy food and clothes. It is hard to pay for bus fares. He urged the Board to not raise fares. 

Mark Gruberg asked the Board to feel the pain of the previous speakers and put themselves in those 
shoes. 

Walter Paulson stated that Muni is not on time and that the budget cuts are unconscionable. The 
fares should be priced lower. Muni has plenty of money and should just put a better line out. 

Ann DuFrane stated that she is disappointed with the proposals. She empathizes with those who 
spoke previously and wondered how many discount passes there are versus the number of parking 
permits. The cost for a residential parking permit is only $8 per month and she stated that she 
would be willing to pay more. 

Brian Browne expressed concern that if fares are increased by one percent that there will be less 
revenues than there are now. 

One speaker made her comments in sign language. 

Nini Phuah stated that she works with developmentally disabled clients who can't afford to pay 
more for a disabled sticker. Most of her clients don't have jobs. Ms. Phuah urged the Board to find 
a solution to keep the pass reduced so her clients have access to activities. Her clients are 
dependent on Muni.

12. Presentation and discussion regarding the SFMTA's Fiscal Years 201 1 and 2012 budgets. 
(Explanatory documents include a slide presentation) (Sonali Bose) 

Sonali Bose, chief financial officer, presented the staff report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel stated that the staff proposal doesn't bring additional ideas beyond what was in the 
FY 10 package. The future year deficit is more significant. Ideas should be brought forward now so 
choices can be carefully weighed. Mr. Pilpel stated that he has presented at least four ideas that 
should be reconsidered. There should be more detail provided. 

Eva Savarlia stated that San Franciscans use Muni. Ms. Savarlia doesn't have a car because the 
cost to own one isn't affordable. She can't live on $800 per month. She asked the Board not to 
increase the cost of the discount pass. 

13. Discussion and vote pursuant to Administrative Code Section 67.10(d) as to whether to conduct 
a closed session and invoke the attorney-client privilege. 

On motion to invoke the attorney-client privilege: unanimously approved.

9. Public Comment 

Barry Taranto expressed concern regarding Mr. Dougherty having responsibility for the taxi 
detail. Mr. Dougherty's plate is full and he has a lot to learn about how the industry works. He 
also expressed concern about SFMTA's approach to cab drivers and the imposition of additional 
hardships. Fares are taken by hotel doormen who make deals with town cars. Mr. Taranto 
wondered about documentation regarding SFPD overtime and whether they worked eight hours. 

Mark Gruberg addressed how taxi issues are agendized for discussion at Board meetings. They 
can't put issues before the Board because of the time limit for speakers.

Snyder 

Speakers expressing concern about parking policy changes affecting garages: Sam Kwong, Jerry 
Lee, Catherine Yee Frank Han, Anni Chung, Peter Lee, 

Gloria Castro addressed the Board in Spanish. 

Chris Peterson urged the SFMTA to extend parking meter hours in the evenings and on 
weekends. 

Irwin Lum, TWU 250 A, stated that operators are consistently used as scapegoats and are blamed 
for fiscal problems. Operations accounts for $200,000 of the budget. Expecting transit operators 
to give back $14.9 million with no guarantees is wrong. The Elsbernd charter amendment is 
outrageous. TWU 250-A is willing to do their part. 

Michael Cheney stated that 10% of the budget can be saved if paid holidays are reduced city- 
wide. Payroll should be reduced by five to ten percent to save money. Everyone needs to take 
responsibility. 

Darshan Gill requested that a class action lawyer call her so she can bring a lawsuit against cars 
that are double parked in front of churches that aren't ticketed. 

Roland Wong stated that he is tired of what is happening with Muni. A recent power surge took 
two hours to fix. A typical run is 40 minutes. Muni isn't able to maintain its fleet. 

Steve Zeltzer stated that it is outrageous to pit seniors against drivers. Board members should be 
required to ride every day. The Board should be elected. The rich should pay. Money isn't 
going to city services but to war profiteers. 

Gifford Hartman stated that it is shameful to blackmail drivers in the media. The robber barons 
are ripping us off. We have to take the system back. A rally will be held on March 4 against the 
cuts. 

Dave Reardon stated that he doesn't see big business or rich people giving back. There needs to 
be an immediate audit and a transit assessment district established. The Board is fronting for the 
rich. The lack of federal tax money is the result of Obama's war on transit operators. 

Bob Planthold stated that the Board should resign. They have abdicated responsibility to one 
politician. This agency is not run for the riders or to benefit the people. People can't figure out 
how the Board allows expenditures of money yet ignores parking meter rates. 



Rolland Clark stated that Muni is broken and there is no accountability. He stated that the Board 
should share the rider's pain of riders. Pensions are unsustainable and worker pay is out of 
whack. The Central Subway project is a boondoggle. 

Linda Chapman discussed mismanagement and civil rights violations. The SFMTA has been out 
of compliance with DOT regulations for years and has ignored their own advisory council. The 
Central Subway project should be cancelled. The SFMTA should put money into operations. 

Jazzie Collins spoke about decreasing salaries of Board members. Downtown San Francisco 
doesn't pay, which could generate more than $20 million. The police are being paid twice. 
Everyone should shut the city down with a strike. 

Marlene Tran stated that Muni is poorly managed. There should be language translation on the 
SFGOV broadcast. There's a lot of waste in Muni. Renumbering bus lines served no purpose 
and wasted money. There should be more transparency. 

MP Howard stated that he neither supports nor acknowledge what is being proposed. He doesn't 
care what Muni is doing. Since the 1990's, there has been a decline in public transportation. Mr. 
Howard stated that he won't renew his card and will put his car back on the street. 

Herbert Weiner stated that Muni managers should be furloughed indefinitely because they're 
always out to lunch. Many should be fired. The TEP was insane and now riders are paying the 
price. 

Daniel Donnell stated that people are doing double or triple overtime and using the city charter to 
justify it. This should be eliminated. Volunteers will work for the city for free just to get the 
experience. Operators are sleeping on the job which costs money. 

David Schneider expressed empathy for the public and for the Board. The Board has been put in 
a position to make cuts because of the general welfare for specific groups rather than for the 
entire country. Bill Gates could cut a check that would cover the problem. 

Chairman Nolan closed public comment on Items 11,12 and 13. 

Director Heinicke requested a public hearing on work rules. 

12. Approving the establishment of an Express Route Premium Monthly Pass and Cable Car 
Premium Monthly Pass; increasing the cost of the Discount Pass for Youth, Seniors and Disabled 
and repealing the fare increase for Candlestick Park Express and Special Event Service to 
balance the FY2010 Amended Operating Budget. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, 
resolution and attachments.) (Sonali Bose) 

Chairman Nolan proposed that the resolution be amended to delete the increase to the discount 
passes for youth, seniors and disabled beyond the May 1, 2010 scheduled increase. 



No public comment on the amendment. 

On motion to amend the resolution to delete the increase to the discount passes for youth, seniors 
and disabled beyond the increase scheduled to go into effect on May 1, 2010: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Black, Heinicke, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka 

NAYES- Beach 

RESOLUTION 10-027 

On motion to approve as amended: 

ADOPTED: AYES -Black, Heinicke, Nolan and Oka 

NAYES - Beach, Lee and McCray 

13. Approving increases in various fees, fines, rates and charges including garage parking rates, 
parking citation penalties, on-street parking permit fees and the Residential Area Parking Permit 
fee and establishing new fees for on-line computer postage and handling transactions; and in- 
person Customer Service Center transactions; authorizing the Executive Director/CEO to 
implement modifications to Municipal Railway transit service; and, acting as the Parking 
Authority Commission, approving changes to off-street parking rates for the Lombard Street, 
Moscone Center, North Beach, Performing Arts, Polk Bush and San Francisco General Hospital 
garages, to balance the FY2010 Amended Operating Budget. (Explanatory documents include a 
staff report, resolution and attachments.) (Sonali Bose) 

RESOLUTION 10-028 

On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Black, Heinicke, Nolan and Oka 

NAYES - Beach, Lee, McCray 

MINUTES FROM THE RECESSED FEBRUARY 26, 2010 SFMTA BOARD MEETING: 

On Tuesday, March 2, Vice Chairman McCray called the recessed meeting of February 26, 2010 
back to order at 12:15 p.m. All members of the Board were present except for Chairman Nolan 
who was absent with notification. Vice Chairman McCray stated that the February 26 meeting 
had been recessed to March 2 in order to receive additional formation regarding Items 12 and 13. 

Sonali Bose, chief financial officer, provided additional information regarding the premium pass 
for express routes and the parking policies for vendors, employees and members of the non- 



profit board of directors for public garages. 

Director Lee requested that more detailed analyses be provided in the future. 

Vice Chairman McCray stated that he would re-open public comment for discussion on Items 12 
and 1 3 regarding the premium pass for express routes and the parking policies for vendors, 
employees and members of the non-profit board of directors for public garages. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel stated that the information presented is at variance with the resolution that was 
adopted. There is no reference to a discount monthly pass for $25 and it was not part of any 
adopted fare changes from last year. There is no explanation as to why certain routes were 
excluded from the premium pass or why the 80X was included. He stated that he is not sure if 
CEQA clearance applies since this is new. 

Emmanuel Castillo stated that he works at the Fifth and Mission garage and requested that 
employees be allowed to park at the garages for free. 

Fausto Chincilla discussed the United States Constitution and the enactment of involuntary 
servitude. Enactment of the parking policy is against our will. This will bring hardship and 
financial burden to employees. Public transportation is unreliable. 

Jorge Carrillo stated that their main concern about employee parking is safety. Many employees 
get off work after 12 midnight. BART is already shut down. His only way home is by bus and 
he lives 50 miles away. Garages won't be able to retain employees. Workers can't afford it. 

Vera Haile stated that she has been gathering signatures about Muni service. People in the outer 
areas of San Francisco have trouble getting downtown. It can take over an hour to get 
downtown. Raising the premium on express buses is a mistake. More express buses are needed 
throughout the day. 

Mark Gleason, Teamsters Local 665, stated that the union had been supportive of the removal of 
the privileges his members enjoy in the garages but since that time, workers have prevailed upon 
union leadership to oppose removal of those privileges. This will create an economic hardship. 
We want to encourage women to work at the garages. Therefore, the Local 665 leadership is not 
in support and asks that the privileges be restored. 

Mark stated that he works as a security guard at the Fifth and Mission garage. This decision will 
impact them, especially those who are working during graveyard hours. Elimination of free 
parking will have an adverse effect and is not in the best interest of San Francisco. 

Eric Williams, TWU Local 250-A stated that increases are being put on those who are less 
fortunate. People coming from the Sunnydale will instead get on the local 9 which are already 
packed. He urged the Board to explore an audit on the budget. 

8 



Otto Monsanto stated that the law to implement fares for parking is directed at people who make 
close to or more than six figures. He has six children who depend on him for food and he only 
made $15,600 last year. 

There was no further action on March 2, 2010 by the SFMTA Board of Directors regarding 
Items 12 and 13, therefore, Vice Chairman McCray adjourned the February 26, 2010 meeting at 
12:42 pm. on March 2, 2010. 

THE REMAINING MINUTES ARE A SUMMARY OF THE ACTIONS TAKEN BY THE 
SFMTA BOARD ON FEBRUARY 26, 2010. 

1 4. Amending the Transportation Code Division II, Article 1 100 to implement a Taxi Medallion 
Sales Pilot Program, sell up to 60 Taxi Medallions, allow Taxi Medallion Holders who are age 
70 and above or disabled to sell their Medallions; authorize the Executive Director/CEO to 
establish a Medallion Sale Price and ratify the decision to close the Waiting List. (Explanatory 
documents include a staff report, resolution and amendments.) (Debra Johnson) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Mark Gruberg stated that this does not have to be approved in order to secure revenue. This plan 
is half-baked. The Board should do the responsible thing and put the plan aside. Fit should form 
its' own committee and craft a new plan. 

Joe Mirabile stated that Ms. Hayashi provided the wrong numbers and are understated. Only one 
bank showed up at a recent meeting with lenders. If the driver defaults on a loan, the bank 
would own the medallion. 

Bud Hazelkorn expressed appreciation that while Ms. Hayashi has tried to assuage their concerns 
they continue to have concerns. They were assured by Mayor Newsom that Prop. K would be 
protected. Ms. Hayashi has promised to secure lenders but not one is yet on board. You have 
revenue in the budget for this but you have no idea where the money is coming from. The 
proposal should be rejected. 

Paul Harting expressed support for the consensus proposal. He stated that as a cab driver, he 
took his duty to the riding public seriously but he gave up hope for a resolution of retirement 
issues. This consensus plan gives hope that he can retire with dignity. He urged the Board to 
listen to them and not to the nayesayers and "negativo's." This plan provides a way to phase out 
elderly drivers. 

Bill Mounsey stated that if medallions are sold it will take longer for his name to come to the top 
of the list. The plan is ridiculous. He committed himself to the industry but was a waste of time 
and he will get nothing in return. This plan is bad for him and for the industry. 

Dave Barlow, UTW, stated that the MTA is stuck in some places and sliding backward in others. 



The debit card program has broken down again. We need centralized dispatch. Driver 
conditions are worse now than a year ago. There has been no movement in providing health care 
and not nearly enough effort to end illegal limousines. Selling medallions is a move backwards. 

Charles Rathbone, Luxor Cab, expressed support for the plan and urged adoption. He expressed 
concerned about the exodus of long time medallion holders. Taxi disciplinary hearings have 
recently resulted in four retractions of medallions. 

Michael Gibbons urged the Board to reject the proposal. This shouldn't be approved without a 
workable financial plan. He questioned what would happen to a loan if it is defaulted. Muni is 
having trouble running its primary mandate. Muni shouldn't run the cab business. 

John Han urged the Board not to approve the plan. Voters were deceived into overturning Prop. 
K. He stated that while he is not opposed to the concepts in the proposal, there is no clear means 
of financing. 

Barry Taranto asked the Board to look at the financing numbers. Violators of medallions should 
get egregious fines. The industry will be hurt if cab companies control medallion holders. 

Ed Healy spoke in favor of the plan. 

Robert Cesano expressed support for the plan. 

Dave Schneider stated that the plan should be sent back. It isn't a plan for service improvement. 
This is a plan to help with financing. The SFMTA needs to provide for our security. 

Andrew Sun, on behalf of John Lazar, expressed appreciation for the work but that there are 
concerns that still need to be addressed. The Lazar plan will improve taxi service. His plan and 
other plans need to be further evaluated. He urged a side by side analysis of all the plans. 

Rico Camacho stated that there are loopholes in the equation. There isn't a bona fide financing 
plan and it doesn't make sense that the plan will enhance taxi service in the city. He presented a 
petition from drivers who opposed the plan. 

Jane Bolig expressed support for the sale of medallions. 

Barry Korengold expressed support for the sale of medallions. 

John Klein stated that he questions the right of the SFMTA Board to be the arbiter of this 
decision. He expressed opposition to the transfer of medallions and the transfer of funds from 
the taxi industry to the Municipal Railway. 

Tone Lee expressed support for the sale of medallions. 

Peter Fox expressed support for the sale of medallions and stated that there should be separate 

10 



meetings for taxi issues. 

Victoria l.ansdown expressed support for the sale of medallions. 

khagendra requested that the list be reopened and that staff provide a 30 day notice so people 
can get on the list. 

Michael Kurpieski stated that he wasn't in favor of the proposal. He doesn't want t to be saddled 
with a debt that he'll never be able to pay off. 

Blake Derby expressed support for the sale of medallions. 

Tariq Mehmood expressed support for the sale of medallions. He added that the wait list was 
closed verbally and he requested that staff allow people to get on the waiting list. The list should 
be closed in the right way. 

Chairman Nolan closed public comment. 

Director Heinicke requested that staff consider a flexible model that determines how much a 
retiree gets, that maximizes revenue, allows people to retire gracefully and maintain a degree of 
pilot project flexibility. 

Chairman Nolan requested a hearing on centralized dispatch in the future. He added that staff 
would look at ways to have a set time for taxi issues.

3 . Announcement of prohibition of sound producing devices during the meeting. 

Vice Chairman McCray announced that the ringing of and use of cell phones, pagers and similar 
sound-producing electronic devices are prohibited at the meeting. He advised that any person 
responsible for the ringing or use of a cell phone, pager, or other similar sound-producing 
electronic devices might be removed from the meeting. He also advised that cell phones that are set 
on "vibrate" cause microphone interference and requested that they be placed in the "off position. 

4. Communications 

Board Secretary Boomer stated that Item 12 had been removed from the agenda at the request of 
the Mayor's Office of Economic Development. The item will be presented at a future meeting. 
She also stated that the closed session scheduled for the meeting was cancelled. 

5. Introduction of New or Unfinished Business by Board Members 

Vice Chairman McCray stated the audit that is being conducted by the Budget Analyst had 
commenced. Each member of the Board will be asked to participate. The audit includes an 
evaluation of how the SFMTA Board governs. 

6. Executive Director's Report (For discussion only) 
No report. 

7. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 
No report. 



8. Public Comment 

David Pilpel stated that there are a number of staff who will be retiring at the end of June. This 
will create a significant knowledge gap. He suggested a presentation regarding staff plans to 
preserve this knowledge. He expressed concern that the contract on the design services for 
Central Subway is an example of misguided priorities when the agency is cutting a significant 
amount of service. 

Robert Cesano spoke about the transferability of medallions and expressed appreciation for the 
vote. He expressed concern that the Board may play around with the percentage that was in the 
original package. The State and Feds will take their taxes. He stated the people who are disabled 
or who are a liability to the public or the companies they drive for need to be encouraged to take 
the option. 

Carl Macmurdo, Medallion Holders Association, expressed appreciation for the approval of the 
taxi medallion reform proposals. Some comments made by Director Heinicke may have 
disastrous impacts. The plan needs to be amended to allow for a resale tax. He added that 
Director Heinicke wants to maximize revenue but we can't play Russian roulette with public 
safety. 

Mark Gruberg stated that what took place at the town hall meetings were discussions. 90% of 
attendees were medallion holders and company managers. This was not a consensus plan. 
People who didn't pay for medallions are saying that $150 - 200,000 isn't enough. Ordinary 
drivers will lose the possibility of obtaining any kind of meaningful benefit. 

THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL 
TRANSPORTATION AGENCY BOARD OF DIRECTORS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR 
ACTION AS STATED BY THE SFMTA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR/CEO OR CITY 
ATTORNEY WHERE APPLICABLE. EXPLANATORY DOCUMENTS FOR ALL 
CALENDAR ITEMS ARE AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW AT 1 SOUTH VAN NESS AVE. 7 th 
FLOOR. 

CONSENT CALENDAR 

9. All matters listed hereunder constitute a Consent Calendar, are considered to be routine by the 
San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency Board of Directors and will be acted upon by a 
single vote. There will be no separate discussion of these items unless a member of the Board of 
Directors or the public so requests, in which event the matter shall be removed from the Consent 
Calendar and considered as a separate item. 

(9.1) Requesting the Controller to allot funds and to draw warrants against such funds available 
or will be available in payment of the following claims against the SFMTA: 



A. Young Chu/Travelers Ins. vs. CCSF, Unlitigated Claim #1001659 filed on 12/14/09 for 
$31,345.25 

RESOLUTION 10-031 

(9.2) Approving the following traffic modifications: 

A. ESTABLISH - BUS ZONE - Howard Street, south side, from 40 feet to 160 feet west of 
Beale Street. 

B. ESTABLISH - TOW-AWAY, NO STOPPING, DURING NON-BUSINESS HOURS -

AM TO 9 PM, MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY - 700 Block of Sanchez Street, both 
sides, between 20th and Liberty Streets. 

I. ESTABLISH - RESIDENTIAL PERMIT PARKING AREA J, 7 AM TO 7 PM, 2- 
HOUR PARKING, MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY - 500 Block of Belvedere Street, 
both sides, between Alma and 17th Streets. (Explanatory documents include a staff 
report and resolution.) (Bond Yee) 

Item 9.2 I was removed from the Consent Calendar at the request of members of the public. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Michael Henschel urged the Board not to approve the item because it would be a hardship on his 
business. He anticipates a 10-15% loss of revenue. His guests would have to park a block or two 
away. He questioned whether the initial petition met the 50% signature requirement. 

Doug Montgomery stated that he originally signed the petition but now questions whether there 
is a parking problem and if this is necessary. He asked that the item be reconsidered. 

Susan Callari stated that parking has been more difficult. Recent surveys show that 89% of their 
parking is taken. Neighbors have to park on 17 Street which is a busy street with no crosswalk. 
Our blocks are a parking lot for people who don't live there. 37 other households want this. 51% 
of 72 households are in favor of this item and 30% are against it. 

3 



Kathryn Siegler stated that there are "J" stickers in her neighborhood except for on these blocks. 
They can't park on the blocks where a "J" sticker is required and have to look for parking. She 
expressed appreciation that businesses struggles but believes residents should come first. 

Debbie Engel stated that she supports the proposal. Residents would like to have priority for 
safety and convenience. She asked the Board to move ahead and implement the "J" sticker. 

Bond Yee, director, Sustainable Streets, reviewed the residential permit program and the request 
for the "J" parking permit area. This request met the threshold and qualifies for the program. 

RESOLUTION 10-032 

On motion to approve Item 9.2 I: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, McCray and Oka 

ABSENT - Nolan 

(9.3) Authorizing the Executive Director/CEO to execute Contract No. 1234, 21 Hayes Pole 
Replacement and Miscellaneous Overhead Construction, with Rosendin Electric in an amount not 
to exceed $6,177,331, and for a term of 365 calendar days. (Explanatory 7 documents include a 
staff report and financial plan.) (Carter Rohan) 

RESOLUTION 10-033 

Item 9.3 was removed from the Consent Calendar at the request of members of the public. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel expressed disappointment that the proposal didn't include non-revenue wire on 
Masonic. Buses that pull-out from Presidio have a circuitous route. The Agency should add it as 
a contract amendment as it will lower operating costs and increase operating efficiencies. 

On motion to approve Item 9.3: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, McCray and Oka 

ABSENT - Nolan 

(9.4) Authorizing the Executive Director/CEO to implement the TransLink® Fare Media Plan, 
which gradually transitions various forms of Muni paper fare media and tokens to the regional 
TransLink® system. (Explanatory documents include a staff report and resolution.) (Sonali Bose)

TomRa du,ovich, L ivableCity,statedthatthereisagoodchancethattheS FM TAinit S present 



form won't reach its 1 1 th birthday. We wanted a Board that would put transit, walking and 
cycling first. Recent actions don't foster those goals. The Board hasn't diligently sought new 
sources of funding such as parking proposals. He hopes the Board will instruct staff to talk to 
neighborhoods about parking. 

Eric Williams, TWU Local 250-A, stated that it's a shame that the Board let the SFMTA hire 
300 operators more than what was needed. The Agency broke every rule of "Negotiations 101." 
This is union busting. The SFMTA budget is over $700m including $200m for operators and 
parts. He questioned where the other $500m is being spent. 

Forrest Schmidt stated that this action would make it easier to do something that the public is 
against and doesn't feel that the Board has the authority to cut service and raise fares. The Board 
didn't use the power it has to tax millionaires and the large corporations. These cuts are driving 
people to cars which increases pollution. The public won't let the SFMTA cut service or raise 
fares. 

Shelley Bell stated that we have a long way to go before we achieve "Transit First". The city is 
under great economic pressure and we must protect our people. Things should be done behind 
closed doors but we should look for suggestions with the community through an open process. 
She suggested we look at city stickers for cars like the system in Chicago. 

David Tornheim stated that bus service keeps getting worse. Over the past ten years the Agency 
has cut service and raised fares. He expressed concern about the process. There's an opportunity 
for 1000 meters downtown that should be implemented. The SFMTA should make it less 
affordable for cars and more affordable for buses. No justification for fiscal emergency 

Rafael Cabrera, TWU Local 250-A, stated that the Charter gave the Board the authority to seek 
additional revenue which the Mayor, the Board of Supervisors and the SFMTA should do. The 
SFMTA can submit ballot measures. The Charter states that the budget must be adequate to 
make substantial progress towards the achievement of service standards. 

Alvin Sered stated that the fiscal emergency shouldn't make us forget the wealth of ideas that we 
could employ. People should be told when they board a vehicle that that vehicle will turn around 
prior to the end of the line. He stated that he would like to see N-Judah extended to CalTrain. 

Marc Caswell, San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, stated that the Charter says that the. Board shall 
diligently seek to develop new sources of revenue. There is some low-hanging fruit such as 
extending parking meter hours. This revenue will support public transit and other alternative 
forms of transportation. 50% of all greenhouse gas emissions are due to private autos. 

Aleena Galloway, TWU Local 250-A, stated that they anticipate the findings of the audit and 
questioned why the Agency is considering a declaration of fiscal emergency before receiving the 
results of the audit. We don't want to give you "carte blanche." 



1 1 . Presentation and Discussion of the SFMTA's FY1 1 and FY12 Operating Budget. 
1 1 \planatory documents include slide presentation.) (Sonali Bose) 

Sonali Bose, Chief Financial Officer, presented the staff report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel stated that there were no budget details provided and that he is very frustrated with 
staffs response. It is insulting to boil down significant proposals to one sentence. How these 
solutions would be handled needs to be made available to the public. The Board shouldn't cut 
service further. He is interested in what the total staff increases are for enforcement and layoffs. 
All ballot measures would need a 2/3 's vote. There is no exploration of organization structure, 
positions, part time operators, owl runs, tokens, real estate, etc. He stated that he filed CEQA 
appeal on the service reductions. 

Gillian Gillett stated that SPUR's goal is minimize cuts and to grow the transit system. Many of 
SPUR's recommendations are beyond their control. Ms. Gillett reviewed SPUR's 
recommendations. 

Frank Lara stated that some Board members have a genuine interest in affordable public interest. 
The Board can propose ballot measures. The downtown businesses and millionaires should be 
taxed rather than poor working families. 

Eric Williams, TWU-Local 250-A stated that the public can't afford more fare increases. If there 
is a fiscal emergency, you should do it after the audit. If operators or the public take a 25% cut 
then management should too. 

Marc Caswell, SF Bike Coalition, stated that drivers circle the block and block Muni. Private 
autos are the number one reason that Muni is delayed. We should price parking so people who 
want to shop can but not allow people who want to dump their cars at 6:01 p.m. The best way to 
create parking is to create turnover. Parking meters were created to help small businesses. 

Darshan Gil provided her number and stated that despite a separation of church and state, free 
parking is allowed for churches, especially along Valencia Street. The Mayor, Board of 
Supervisors, and the SFMTA should be sued for not upholding the Constitution. The SFMTA 
should demand the immediate abolition of free parking for churches. 

Dave Snyder expressed appreciation that the SFMTA doesn't want to cut transit and he strongly 
urged the Board to take that off the chart. The Agency only included a $6. 5m reduction in work 
orders which is way too small. He urged the Agency to stop subsidizing other departments. He 
stated that the revenue panel had good ideas and questioned why the Agency isn't pursuing those 
now. He urged the Board to implement a payroll tax increase. 

Tom Radulovich, Livable City, expressed opposition for the transfer penalty. He urged the 

7 



Board to look at work orders because people shouldn't have to pay twice for police protection. 
He expressed support for the parking proposal put forth by staff last Fall. There are downtown 
garages that don't abide by policies. 

Herbert Weiner stated that there's a management crisis ever since Nathaniel Ford came on board. 
The fault of operations is not due to drivers but to management. Many managers are incompetent 
and don't play with a full deck. The TEP was destructive. 

Sue Vaughan stated that SPUR has made several suggestions such as taxing gas outlets, a 
parking stall tax, expanding the TIDF to cover residential units and an off-street commercial 
parking fee. The SFMTA should look into all of these ideas. 

John Grasso stated he cannot afford to ride a bus. People who have more money should pay 
more. 

Irwin Lum, TWU Local 250-A, stated that 250-A is still discussing what they can contribute to 
the budget deficit. There is a lot of money unaccounted for. Some merchants are open to 
Sunday parking but the Agency needs to look at areas with a high concentration of restaurants 
and evening activities. 

Jean Rosemayer stated that as oil prices rise, people will want to take the bus. To cut service at 
this point will result in a deeper hole to dig out of in three to five years. 

12. Presentation and Discussion of the Hunters Point Shipyard Phase 2 - Candlestick Point 
Integrated Development Project and related Transportation elements. (Explanatory documents 
include a staff report.) (Bond Yee) 

Item 12 was removed from the agenda. 

Board Secretary Boomer stated that notwithstanding the previous announcement made under 
Item five, Communications, the Board will meet in closed session. 

At this point in the meeting, Vice Chairman McCray recessed the SFMTA Board meeting and 
called the Parking Authority Commission meeting to order to hear from the public regarding 
Parking Authority Commission items. 

13. Discussion and vote pursuant to Administrative Code Section 67.10(d) as to whether to

3. Announcement of prohibition of sound producing devices during the meeting. 

Chairman Nolan announced that the ringing of and use of cell phones, pagers and similar sound- 
producing electronic devices are prohibited at the meeting. He advised that any person responsible for 
the ringing or use of a cell phone, pager, or other similar sound-producing electronic devices might be 
removed from the meeting. He also advised that cell phones that are set on "vibrate" cause microphone 
interference and requested that they be placed in the "off position. 

4. Approval of Minutes 

Vice Chairman McCray arrived. 

On motion to approve the minutes of the February 26, 2010 Special Meeting: unanimously approved. 

Chairman Nolan stated that at the February 26, 2010 meeting, the Board had intended to approve a 
motion to suspend its Rules of Order regarding public notice prior to approving Items 12 and 13 but 
that motion and vote did not take place. To remedy the omission, Chairman Nolan moved that the 
Board retroactively suspend their Rules of Order. 

PUBLIC COMMENT on the motion to suspend the Rules of Order: 

David Pilpel stated that the motion is not related to an agenda item and therefore it's not proper to 
take a procedural motion at this meeting. This action has legal effect because the resolutions refer to 
an action that didn't occur. This is not properly before the Board and is a violation of the Sunshine 
and Brown acts. 

Teresa Sheehan expressed agreement with Mr. Pilpel. This meeting doesn't have to deal with legal 
ramifications. 

1 



Mark Norton requested information from legal counsel if there is any evidence of other retroactive 
approvals by any other city and county entity. 

DCA Friedlander stated that any defect in approvals was not a legal defect related to public meeting 
laws and therefore, the Board was free to move forward with the motion. 

On motion to retroactively suspend Article 4, Section 10 of the SFMTA Board of Directors Rules of 
Order regarding published notice: unanimously approved. 

PUBLIC COMMENT on approval of the February 26 and March 2 minutes: 

Peter Witt asked the Board if the minutes had been corrected and if not, why not. He expressed 
concern regarding the Board's lack of integrity, facts and direction for taxis. For ten years, the 
former Taxi Commission suppressed his testimony and materials he submitted. The public is not 
allowed timely access to meeting minutes. He demanded materials from the 2008 or 2009 Public 
Convenience and Necessity hearing. 

On motion to approve the minutes of the February 26, 2010 Special Meeting: unanimously approved. 

On motion to approve the minutes of the March 2, 2010 Regular Meeting: unanimously approved. 

5. Communications 
None. 

6. Introduction of New or Unfinished Business by Board Members 
None. 

7. Executive Director's Report (For discussion only) 

-Special Recognition Award 
-Ongoing Activities 

Exec. Director/CEO Ford presented Special Recognition Awards to Derek Kim, manager, Human 
Resources, Administration, Taxis and Accessible Services; Deborah Saltzman, Transit Supervisor, 
Training Instructor, Transportation Training, Safety, Security & Enforcement; Conrad Cantrell; 
Electrical Transit System Mechanic, Metro East, Transit Operations; and Michael Henry, Assistant 
Supervisor, Potrero Maintenance Division, Transit Operations. 

Exec. Director/CEO Ford discussed the departure of Chief Safety Officer Jim Dougherty and 
reviewed his accomplishments. He also discussed the status of the Proof of Payment and 
Governance audits. 



PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Richard Clark. California Public Utilities Commission, expressed appreciation to Mr. Dougherty. 

Julie Darbellay stated that sometimes she had lost her transfer which has caused problems. She 
noted that a paper transfer can get torn and asked if transfers could be made better so they're more 
secure. 

Peter Witt stated that he had no idea that he needed to keep a transfer. He inquired why taxis weren't 
included in the discussion regarding fare evasions. People call for three cabs at a time and two of 
them don't get the fare. This is a disservice to the industry. There is a serious problem with calling a 
cab during peak times. The City needs to have better service during those times rather than more 
taxis. Tourists don't complain about taxi service. 

Michael Leutziner, Operator, stated that he tells his riders to take a transfer but it's "edgier" when 
people pay a partial fare. He would like to know if people who pay a partial fare should get a 
transfer. Often arguments with a passenger occur as a result which always comes back on the 
operator. 

David Pilpel stated that there needs to be more training for operators and more display cards. Issues 
related to Translink and transfer policies need more in-depth discussion. He asked when the scope of 
the BOS audit would be published. When it is published, it should be made available to the Board 
and to the public. 

Jude Wideman stated that paid fares had increased in the system and were almost certainly due to the 
number of people who can't afford to drive cars. 

Forrest Schmidt, Answer Coalition, stated that cost of the saturation enforcement, which is an 
increase in attacks on people, in the amount of $3.6 million only brought in $900,000. There is no 
proof for the assertion that increased ridership is the result. People don't understand that they're 
being cited so they don't pull out their proof of payment. It's wrong for the Board to not look for 
other revenue than from riders. 

Irwin Lum, TWU, Local 250-A stated that there are not enough notices regarding Proof of Payment. 
People feel that there's selective and inconsistent enforcement. Some people are allowed to pay their 
fare while others are escorted off the bus. When people do have transfers, people are told that 
transfers that expire prior to when they get to their destination aren't valid. 

James Bryant, SEIU 1021, stated that the public has to recognize that the subway has to be taken 
seriously. On many occasions, there aren't enough personnel to open the doors or cover for lunch 
breaks. After the 1989 earthquake, station agents corralled people out of the trains to save havens. 
We are creating our own liability by not ensuring that we have enough people to cover Metro stations 
and operate in safe manner. 



8. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 
No report. 

9. Public Comment 

Hansu Kim expressed concern that influential agents for one of the losing bidders had had undue 
influence on the process to award contracts for the management of parking garages. It's not too late 
to do the right thing. He urged the Board to execute the staff recommendation that was achieved via 
a process that was a model for how contracts should be awarded. 

Fred Bekele stated that he has been pleading with the Board to proceed with the award of the 
contract. That was supposed to happen on February 1 st but nothing has happened. This is a 
discrimination issue. His company won the contract fair and square. He stated that Mr. Ford had 
said that he didn't want the contract to be rejected. Staff recommended it. He asked the Board to do 
the right thing and award the contract. A lawsuit will be bad for the Agency. 

Peter Witt asked if the Board knew what a customer satisfaction survey was. It's a tool to collect 
data. When the Board sees one that has been done consistently over the past ten years, the Board 
should know that they don't come any better. The Board shouldn't mind data to be better informed 

Christopher Fulkerson stated that businesses rise and fall. If you take good taxi shifts away there 
will be no profitability. If there are peak-time medallions there will be a terrible safety problem as 
drivers will try to take out spare cabs. There will be pressure put on maintenance shops and nothing 
but problems on the road. 

David Pilpel remembered three individuals who had recently passed away. He added that there are a 
lot of people leaving that will leave big holes in the agency and encouraged the Board to hold a 
hearing on succession planning. He noted that the Executive Director/CEO was out of the office for 
22 out of 30 days in March. 

Arthur Lembke stated that accidents caused by people driving medallions when they shouldn't will 
be remedied. Having part-time medallions is a way to go and he would rather see part-time 
medallions when they're needed rather than flooding streets with taxicabs when they're not needed. 
Vice Chairman McCray requested a status report regarding the contract for management of public 
garages at the next meeting. 

THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL 
TRANSPORTATION AGENCY BOARD OF DIRECTORS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR

(Explanatory documents include a staff report and resolution.) (Bond Yee) 

Item 10.2 N was removed from the Consent Calendar at the request of a member of the public. 

PUBLIC COMMENT on Item 10.2N: 

David Pilpel questioned environmental review for the items and expressed the belief these are 
exempt from environmental review. He suggested that future calendar items include that 
information. He also stated that one Board member may live in close proximity to 10.2N and 
wondered what the process was to determine if there is a conflict. 

DCA Friedlander stated that it is up to Board members to identify conflicts. 

RESOLUTION 10-035 

On motion to approve Item 10.2 N: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka 

(10.3) Authorizing the Executive Director/CEO to accept and expend $168,000 of Regional Measure 
2 funds for a Safe Routes to Transit project to promote and encourage safe bicycling to and from the 
Glen Park BART Station. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution, application and 
opinion of legal counsel.) (Sonali Bose)

Crestlake, Fillmore, St. Francis Wood, and Sunnyside neighborhoods (Explanatory documents 
include a staff report, resolution and maps.) (Bond Yee) 

Item 10.4 was removed from the Consent Calendar at the request of a member of the public. 

PUBLIC COMMENT on Item 10.4: 

David Pilpel expressed concern about environmental review and potential conflicts. Calendar items 
should include the environmental review document or the case number. The detail on the particular 
traffic calming projects is small, hard to read and not easy to understand. He asked for the 
opportunity to discuss this further with Mr. Yee and staff. 

RESOLUTION 10-037 

On motion to approve Item 10.4: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka 
On motion to approve the Consent Calendar (Items 10. IB, 10.2N and 10.4 severed): 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka 

REGULAR CALENDAR 

1 1 . Presentation and discussion of the SFMTA's Operating Budget for FY1 1 and FY12 and public 
hearing regarding possible increases to various fares, fees, fines, rates and charges, transit service 
modifications and expenditure reductions. (Explanatory documents include a staff report.) (Sonali 
Bose) 

Chairman Nolan stated that the recent announcement regarding state funds for transit has provided 
the SFMTA with a little breathing room. He suggested that the SFMTA be prudent with the money 
but suggested that, due to Board member opposition at the last meeting to the establishment of a 
premium pass for express vehicles and cable cars, that the Board rescind their action on those two 
items. He also asked staff to return to the Board with a series of options with regards to the planned 
service cuts. 

Exec. Director/CEO Ford stated that staff would bring a resolution to the Board that would rescind, 
for FY10, increases to the express and cable car premium pass and would present opportunities to 
defray or delay the current 10% cut in service. He noted that the State money may not arrive prior to 
the end of the fiscal year but that staff is working with various entities to see if the money could be 
advanced to help resolve the FY10 budget deficit. 

Sonali Bose, chief financial officer, presented the staff report.

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Teresa Sheehan stated that money from the State should keep fares at current rates or at rolled back 
rates. Driver and staff salaries should be maintained. The SFMTA shouldn't count on taxi 
medallion sales. Service should be cut back on some lines but certain buses are overcrowded. 

Omar Ali expressed opposition to cuts in public service and demanded an end to police harassment. 
The budget crisis is due to ineffective bodies. He stated that cuts to OWL service will cause delays 
for students. He condemned attacks on drivers and stated that they should get fair pay. The State 
money should be used to restore public service. 

Tan Chow stated that budget deficit will disproportionately hit Chinatown residents. In Chinatown 
public transportation is a necessity not a choice. The public deserves to know where the money is 
going. State funds should go to operating costs. The SFMTA should reduce unnecessary work 
orders, create a pass for youth and provide affordable public transit. Don't balance the budget on 
backs on those who are most dependent on transit. 

Wong Hoi Chung expressed concern about the SFMTA budget. Many who ride Muni are low 
income and Muni is the only way to get around. He requested transparency with regard to the State 
funds and would like to see the service cuts rescinded. 

Wing Hoo Leung expressed concern about Muni services. 90% of seniors and students rely on 
public transit. They face deeper service cuts and irregular schedules. Accidents are due 
mismanagement. He encouraged SFMTA officials to come to Chinatown to see what it's really like. 
Chinatown needs better service. Every time the elderly come to hearings, they arrive before the start 
of the meeting but they have to go to an overflow room. They are treated like second class citizens. 

Rosa Penate stated that there is money. This is a war of the ruling class against the working class. 
The war in Iraq and Afghanistan isn't her war and she wasn't consulted. Funding to Israel should be 
cut. No more hikes and no more cuts in services. 

Paul Greenberg stated that corporations have wealth. This is a city whose wealth comes from the 
workers. He stated that he doesn't appreciate union bashing or blaming them for problems created 
by management. Drivers and workers are united. 

Irwin Lum, TWU 250-A stated that service cuts and fare increases are the wrong way to go. Further 
cuts and increases will place an undue burden on seniors, youth, disabled and working families 
especially at a time when more people are unemployed. Muni has to be reliable and affordable. 
Further cuts will mean buses will be overcrowded and people will be passed up. Operators will 
experience the frustration of the public. The SFMTA needs to look work orders and reduce the 
money that goes to other departments. The May 1 service modifications should be cut back. 



Forrest Schmidt stated that there was an effort to demonize and penalize the workers in the press. 
The Chronicle and Examiner didn't list manager salaries. At the last town hall meeting, people were 
told they would have to use their cars. Poor people don't have cars. A coalition of riders and drivers 
have come together to oppose cuts. Rich people have money. 

Richard Becker stated that every proposal presented tries to squeeze the last dollar out of the working 
poor. The Board doesn't talk about the war or the AIG bailout. The "feds" should be asked to 
bailout transit. The rich, who created this crisis, should be taxed. This is political cowardice. It's 
easier to attack the poor rather than take on the rich. 

Sarah Carlson congratulated the SFMTA for maintaining some semblance of service. A fiscal 
emergency exists because of the extensive misuse of funds. The SFMTA wants people to believe 
that the only way for the Agency to survive is to take from the poor but people know that's not true. 
People wait for overcrowded buses and are harassed by police. No cuts. No hikes. 

Steph Feiring stated that she knows something needs to be done about the huge budget deficit but 
service cuts hurt riders. People who don't pay their fare should be stopped from boarding through the 
rear doors. Broken fare boxes should be fixed. The decision makers need to take pay cuts and 
admit that they made mistakes. 

John Hunt stated that the proposed premium fare for express buses and cable cars are a slap in the 
face to working people who already pay more for passes. He expressed appreciation for the 
interest shown by the Board to rescind the premium passes. He uses cable cars to connect with the 
Market St. and Van Ness corridors. 

Marlene Tran stated that she collected over 4,000 signatures in opposition to Muni and the fare 
hikes. The administration should be more fiscally responsible and shouldn't dream up needless 
things such as renumbering bus lines. High salaried board members and staff should take a salary 
cuts. San Francisco needs more transit, not less. Allocating only $500 for translation is 
disrespectful. 

Donaji Lona, POWER, stated that hikes and cuts make it impossible for families to use public 
transportation. The Board doesn't have any idea what it feels like for someone who can't afford $2 
to ride a bus and the remedies don't make sense. People will have to pay more for because of budget 
mismanagement. These policies have a high human cost and a high discrimination in the 
community. It is shameful that a youth is taken off a bus in handcuffs when he doesn't have the 
money to pay his fare. POWER is united with the drivers and is against the declaration of fiscal 
emergency. 

Beatriz Herrera demanded that the Board not declare a fiscal emergency. A fiscal emergency is not 
necessary. Criminalizing fare evaders is wrong and unfair. The Board should stop targeting young, 
old, and regular people of color to hide its' mismanagement. 



David Delgado expressed opposition to raising fares and to the declaration of fiscal emergency. Poor 
neighborhoods are being targeted. We don't need to have police on Muni to collect transfer fees. 

Patricia Fernandez stated that the police should stop harassing and ticketing people. They should 
ticket skate boarders on Van Ness. We want to be a "green" city and encourage people to take public 
transportation. The Board is working with the automotive industry. The changes will affect the 
poorest, most vulnerable people. The 14 and 49 lines are ugly and dirty and don't have accessible 
stops for people with disabilities. The declaration of fiscal emergency must be stopped. 

Frank Lara stated that it is disrespectful to the public to cut service and have meetings at 9 am. The 
fiscal emergency should be stopped. People are frustrated and want to see the solutions put on the 
rich. 

Pat Hendricks wondered if the Board understands that Muni is a service. The platform was filled 
with people this morning and three vehicles went by that were packed. She was able to board the 
fourth vehicle. This is common at 9 am. Besides looking at the needs of seniors, students and 
disabled, the Board needs to look at the needs of working people. The J-Church is jammed. 

Herbert Weiner stated that the Board and management don't see passengers as humans, especially 
seniors and disabled. The TEP has been the foundation of all cuts. Cuts will destroy Muni service. 
With the influx of State funds no increases to fares or cuts to service should be contemplated. The 
management salaries should be cut and used for buses and drivers. It's time to declare a 
management crisis not fiscal one. 

Vera Haile expressed concern about language access as it hasn't been happening . Ms. Haile stated 
that she was glad to hear that the SFMTA got additional money but wants to hear a commitment that 
senior, disabled and youth fares won't increase. People are unanimously against fare increases. 

Donna Willmott stated that extending parking hours is unpopular but there is also tremendous 
unpopularity for raising the discount fare. There is a common voice against balancing the budget on 
the backs of the most vulnerable. She expressed appreciation for the brief reprieve and requested 
that the Board freeze the discount pass. It's too punishing for those who cannot afford it. Another 
top priority is to minimize the service cuts which disproportionately affect people. 

PJ Williams, Transit Operator, stated that he understands that the budget has to be fixed but 
operators move the people. Operators are not there to be liked. They have a job to do. Operators are 
united with the public. Drivers haven't had a raise in the last 1 8 months. He is appalled to hear the 
media say that drivers aren't giving back anything. 

Karen Van Dine expressed concern about increased fares and less service. People on SSI have very 
little money to spend on basic needs. Students who kicked off Muni vehicles are just trying to get to 
school or to a part-time job. 



10 



Ellen Murray stated that the major issue that is not being addressed is revenue. Staff has put forth a 
false choice between fare increases and operator wages. In reality, there are areas of revenue 
collection that the SFMTA has failed to go after such as the transit impact development fee or an 
assessment district that have been gutted by big business. Big business has avoided paying for 
transportation service. 

Bruce Allison suggested that since 51 1 is the official number is free and 311 charges the Agency 
money, then people should use the free service. 

Mark Joseph Soderman stated that the Board has to take the public's interest into consideration 
because they voted for the Board. It's not easy to pay rent or bus fares. The City should consider 
having a day pass similar to the one in Los Angeles. 

Tiffany Konyen stated that middle school students will get creative and use their bikes to make their 
way around the city. The Board should get creative and make problems as less painful as possible. 
The hikes and decreases to service should be reconsidered and the Agency should stop making 
drivers its' attack dogs. 

Jazzie Collins stated that you found $3m and got another $3 8m. The Agency has $70m in federal 
transportation money. There is no fiscal emergency. There is nothing but corruption. Riders want to 
public transportation all day. Gender profiling should be stopped. It's unnecessary to ask for 
identification when people are asked for their proof of payment. Salaries should be decreased. 

Jude Widman wondered why San Francisco couldn't have quality public transportation like other 
large cities. London has a fee zone downtown which impacts the rich. San Francisco should charge 
$12 to get downtown and apply it to Muni. It's cheaper to drive across the bridge than to take 
BART. We need to reduce the number of parking spaces in SF. This will decrease car use and 
increase space for pedestrians. We need to tax gas stations. People are hassled for not being able to 
pay their fares. Board member salaries are too high. 

Howard Grayson asked the Board to stop raising prices because the public can't afford it. It's time 
for the Board to take its' cut and stop pitting drivers against riders. There should be more buses and 
more drivers. 

Julio Hernandez stated that difficult decisions have to be made. Everyone knows how much money 
the Board makes and those salaries should be cut. He received a $75 ticket because his transfer had 
expired. People will be protesting until the police are moved out of Muni. 

Mitch Park stated that a majority of workers can't make these meetings. They don't know what a 
fiscal emergency is. It's safer to take BART rather than take the 14 Mission. A fiscal emergency 
isn't an option in this situation as there is plenty of money. Mr. Park expressed opposition to service 
cuts and increased fees. 



11 



Tatiana Kostanian stated that she has many disabilities and is on SSI. The N-Judah isn't accessible 
from 1 9 th to Sunset. She urged the SFMTA to make bus lines inclusive and accessible. 

Mario Yedidia, SF Youth Commission, stated that even with state money, the SFMTA is still facing 
a deficit. The Youth Commission has thought about how to prioritize the most vulnerable people 
and protect them from fares and they ask the SFMTA Board to consider implementing a youth 
lifeline pass to be sold at half the cost of a youth discount pass. He has heard many anecdotes about 
aggressive fare evasion. 

Kim Malcheski stated that the 26 Valencia was terminated so now he pays extra to ride the 14- 
Mission which is a filthy bus. He has never ridden on a bus system that has as much trash or where 
there are armed police that board a bus to check for transfers. This is an artificial financial crisis 
because the SFMTA pays out millions in overtime. The Board isn't managing the system. Paying 
for work orders is money out of our pocket and is a violation of the "Transit First" policy. CEQA 
requires the Agency to conduct environmental impact reports. 

Bobby Bogan stated that there is too much money. The nation is in an economic crisis and everyone 
has to make things happen, especially the Board. Sacrifice has to be spread around and it should 
start with the Board. The culture has got to change otherwise the nation won't get better. 

Eva Chrysanthe expressed support for Muni drivers who put up with abuse. There is little respect 
for them. The public transit system in New York is excellent. The more that is invested in a public 
good, the stronger that city is. She stated that it's wonderful to be on a system that is democratizing 
but that is lacking in San Francisco. The public has no sense of what a city is because people are 
driving their cars. 

Dave Schneider would like to know if there is a plaque in City Hall that honors the workers who 
built this building. There are statues of the big guys but nothing for workers. 

David Fischer commended Muni for doing a good job for the most part. He stated that he has been 
liberated from his automobile. The problem in an urban environment is people who drive short 
distances. He inquired as to how many Board members took Muni to the meeting. People who have 
cars should face a syntax on their internal combustion machines. He stated that he doesn't buy the 
argument that people won't be able to get to work because of a licensing fee. Muni drivers should 
have badges. 

Edgar Maddrey spoke about the cuts to service. His punctuality has been challenged when he uses 
public transit. Late evening service cuts will be hard. He implored the SFMTA to run buses often 
enough especially late in the evening so they're useful. 

Gloria stated that their opinion doesn't count because youth are still facing the atrocities made by the 
Board. This is helping people to organize so they can fight back. For a long time, buses have 
provided a half-service. Buses break down frequently. The news that workers are being fired is 
incredible and unfair. The Board needs to ride the bus so it can experience what riders do. 

12 



Peter Witt slated that he doesn't envy the Board its job. It's difficult but the Board is being paid big 
bucks but is not being accountable. He stated that he is happy that Muni is failing because taxi 
drivers got more rides. They can use the business. Taxi drivers aren't being treated fairly. There's 
no mention of increasing meter rates. They want a "fair raise" in order to keep up with inflation. 

Tina Landis stated that the SFMTA wants to declare a fiscal emergency rather than study the impact 
on the city. People don't want to pay for mismanagement. More public transit is needed. It's a lie 
that there is no money. The Board's bloated salaries should be cut. Public transit can be free if cuts 
are made from the top. 

David Pilpel stated that it appears that the proposals don't add up to the amount of the projected 
deficit. It's difficult to compare the staff report for Item 1 1 with the presentation. There were 
significant changes that are difficult to reconcile. It's not clear that there is a comprehensive plan to 
address the deficit. He stated that he had previously requested background information and a 
comprehensive list of the assumptions used for this budget. It's important to have those details so 
the public can review the information and the Board can have better informed public comment. The 
automatic indexing plan wouldn't increase fares in FY1 1 but would result in decreased fares. The 
Translink fare is unfair. 

Ann Dufrane stated that drivers are very courteous and that she rarely encounters one who is having 
a bad day. The Board must seriously consider the issue with overtime as it is very inflated. The 
proposal for residential parking permits is to raise them by $20 per year but the raise to discount 
passes would be $60 per year. The fee for parking permits should be raised. They are the best deal 
around. 

Chairman Nolan closed the public hearing. The Board recessed the meeting in order to take a short 
break. 

Exec. Director/CEO Ford stated that there has been consistent misinformation presented regarding 
salaries paid to members of the Board. Board members are volunteers and receive a stipend for 
attending Board meetings. The actual compensation is $2,400 per year. 

Director Beach asked about the number of wrapped vehicles on city streets has increased and 
expressed concern that the advertising contract was being violated. He also requested additional 
information regarding rental of SFMTA vehicles and an update regarding the Cubic contract. 

Chairman Nolan stated that the consensus of the Board is to eliminate the fee for express lines and to 
direct staff to come back with proposals to reduce cuts to Muni service. 

12. Declaring that a continuing fiscal emergency exists caused by the failure of agency revenues to 
adequately fund agency programs, facilities, and operations pursuant to the California Public 
Resources Code and California Environmental Quality Act. (Explanatory documents include a staff 
report and resolution.) (Sonali Bose) 

13 



Sonali Bose, chief financial officer, presented the staff report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel stated that he received written responses to his comments this morning and he has not 
had sufficient time to review the responses and determine if they are responsive. He stated that he 
did provide written comments before 5:00 pm on March 12. This is a special meeting. The law 
discusses responding at a regular meeting. He questioned why the Agency would invoke this action 
if there were no service cuts planned. There was no detail about fares. The public comment at the 
last meeting doesn't seem to be fully responded to. His previously submitted comments weren't 
responded to. He urged the Board not to adopt the item. 

Donaji Lona stated that declaring this fiscal emergency will impact the community without 
measuring what that impact would be. Many people who commented previously are opposed to 
declaring the fiscal emergency. Nobody has been happy with the changes already implemented and 
the community needs to study it with good attention. San Francisco needs to have a sustainable 
transportation system. 

Frank Lara said that these statistics allow people to be terrorized in certain districts. People are 
seeing that tax increases are being proposed. Instead of going for large amounts of money that can 
sustain Muni for years, the Board is going for little things. Instead it should mobilize people to go 
for the large amounts of money. 

Paul Greenberg inquired into what this "so-called" fiscal emergency was. There is a capitalist crisis. 
There haven't been any natural disasters. This was a decision made by wealthy bankers and is on 
the backs of the workers. It's time for the banks to pay. 

Francisco Da Costa stated that the Board has adversely impacted the community, especially the 
physically challenged, the elderly and the poor. The Board represents the community and it knew 
what was coming down the pipeline. The Board had no vision. 80% of this dire emergency is due 
to poor leadership. 

Sue Vaughan stated that she knows the crisis is real and huge and not all your fault but this situation 
is not going to get fixed in two years. It will require thinking really big and making some politically 
hard decisions. The Agency has to expand the hours of parking meter operation. People will get 
used to it. The Agency has to put a revenue generating measure on the ballot. She expressed doubt 
that everything possible has been done. 

Forrest Schmidt stated that people were at the meeting earlier to oppose the fiscal emergency. It's 
crazy to think it's a good idea to spend $3. 4m to collect $900,000. The Board has worked against 
the will of the crowds and continues to discredit itself. The Agency has dug a hole for itself and has 
no credibility left. 



14 



Dave Schneider stated that there's no plaque in the building dedicated to the workers. As far as the 
fiscal emergency is concerned, Abraham Lincoln said that labor is superior to capital because it came 
first 

Barbara Lopez expressed concern with calling this a fiscal emergency. Attendance at schools is 
mandator}' and Muni is essential for children to attend schools. The price increase really affected 
working families. This affects the life of a family in many different ways. 

Christopher Fulkerson stated that the way to get out of the economic problem is two-fold. Tax the 
rich and raise the income of the poor. You can tax the rich immediately. The problem you're being 
presented with is not yours to solve but it's a good idea. 

RESOLUTION 10-038 

On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Heinicke, Lee, Nolan and Oka 

NAYES - Black and McCray 

13. Presentation and Discussion of the SFMTA's Capital Budget for FY1 1 and FY12. (Explanatory 
documents include a slide presentation.) (Bond Yee) 

Timothy Papandreou, deputy director, Sustainable Streets, presented the staff report. 

In response to a question by Director Beach, acting ED/CEO Debra Johnson stated that staff would 
provide a memo to the Board that outlines the expenditure of funds for all projects related to fare 
collection. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel stated that the cash flow in the program is unclear and it's also unclear if these are prior 
encumbrances or future dollars. He suggested that the list of projects include a description of the 
project, the funds and whether the project is intended to reduce or expand operating costs. Mr. 
Pilpel is in favor of prioritizing those projects that reduce operating costs. It isn't clear what the 
unfunded need is. Vehicles and transit facilities are at issue. 

Peter Witt wondered why taxis weren't included. Cab drivers are slowed down from picking up 
customers because they have to make change for a $20. Taking payment by credit cards also slows 
cab drivers down. Nobody seems to have thought of cab stands. 

Christopher Fulkerson stated that the issue of universal dispatch will soon become obsolete due to 
applications available on I-phones. Throwing money at universal dispatch isn't something that 
merits immediate action. 

15 



14. Approving and adopting amendments to Article 1 100 of Division II of the Transportation Code, 
regulating Motor Vehicles for Hire to establish a Taxi Advisory Council. (Explanatory documents 
include a staff report, resolution and amendment) (Debra Johnson) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Barlow, UTW, stated that the Board shouldn't amend the Code. The Board doesn't want to 
undermine its' regulatory authority. Medallion sales will do that. A majority vote on that panel will 
go to the interests of medallion holders. The Board shouldn't approve this amendment. 

David Pilpel stated that the proposed council would not be a passive advisory body. If the Board 
creates it, it will be a policy body pursuant to the Sunshine Ordinance Task Force. He would like to 
know what the staffing costs would be. The amendment is not approved as to form and there are no 
public members serving on the body. He questioned whether the Board was provided the correct 
resolution. 

Ms. Hayashi stated that Mr. Pilpel was correct regarding. This body would not be a passive meeting 
body and the resolution was in error. 

DCA Friedlander stated that the calendar item and actual legislation before the Board was correct 
and therefore, the Board could move forward. 

David Schneider stated that he was disturbed by the vote by Directors Black and McCray as it 
divided workers against workers. At the last meeting there was a petition of 600 drivers who didn't 
want this medallion plan to go forward. 

Ruach Graffis stated that in last 30 years, taxi industry has endured the demise of the union, political 
neglect and decades of corruption. The Taxi Commission ignored the huge issues facing the 
industry. The industry had hoped that with the Board's knowledge of union rules this would 
improve but the Board's vote took away the one shining hope for medallions. There are only three 
people to represent 6500 drivers who will serve on the structure of the group that will oversee this 
industry. 

Peter Witt stated that he thought we were talking about dissolving the pilot program. Companies 
have been ruling for a long time. Drivers have no say and the public has no voice. There is no 
permanency to this group and it strikes him as being corrupt. Payoffs are standard and are part of the 
culture. This is a small group of nobodies to represent cab drivers who have no benefits. 

Christopher Fulkerson stated that medallions are not city property. Drivers create their value. They 
are a license and not a commodity. A lot of human suffering has occurred due to the passage of Prop 
K. 



16 



Man McCiuirc stated that this body is a good idea if they will deal with other issues. Making it a 
policy body is good because it will have to follow Sunshine Rules. It would also be good to televise 
meetings to reach out to the industry. There are issues other than the sales of medallions that need 
to be dealt with. 

Carl Macmurdo expressed appreciation for the advisory council. It's well balanced and will give a 
lot of input to complex problems. 

Barry Korengold expressed support for the idea of an advisory council. It includes representation 
from various parts of a complex industry. This is a good start towards finding workable, practical 
solutions. He assumes that the town hall meetings will continue. 

Bill Mounsy says that this just sets up a new taxi commission. The last one didn't work and this one 
won't either. Somebody has to make decisions for the industry. The public should be represented. 

John Han stated that the concepts of an advisory council are a good idea if there were a few changes. 
The 1 5 member council appears to be well balanced but there are nine medallion holders versus six 
non-medallion holders. 

Paul Goodfader expressed hope that medallions aren't sold. A lot of people would be hurt. Drivers 
live day to day. 

Ed Healy stated that this is a simple advisory committee that will make non-binding decisions. The 
SFMTA has a Citizen's Advisory Council that this council will work in coordination with. Mr. 
Healy supports the establishment of the advisory council. 

Arthur Lembke expressed appreciation to the SFMTA for their accomplishments. This vote will 
allow the spirit of transferability and allow older medallion holders to retire with dignity. It's a win- 
win situation for all concerned. Part-time taxi medallions should be put out for times of great need. 
Hansu Kim, SF Taxicab Coalition, stated that the coalition fully supports the formation of the 
council. He stated that he has never seen the level of transparency and inclusion that exists within 
the SFMTA. This council is a good first step towards an integrated taxi policy. 

Yossede Desta stated that he had submitted document to Ms. Hayashi at prior taxi meetings to add 
more taxis and had suggested to her that the taxi industry is a feudal system. Each taxi driver should 
submit $1,000 which will be a prize for the person who submits the best ideas. 

Mike Spain expressed support for the organization of this advisory board. It may look to be in favor 
of permit holders but there are six seats for cab companies. He cautioned the SFMTA about the 
interest of the city to take back permits from people who appear to have violated the procedures. 

Jane Bolig noted that there are several bodies at which the public can speak. She welcomes the 
establishment of a body of people that knows what the taxi industry is. Companies welcomed the 
pilot program but are cautious about possible pitfalls. 

17 



Chris Hayashi read into the record the revised resolution for consideration by the Board related to the 
establishment of a temporary Taxi Advisory Counsel.

interference and requested that they be placed in the "off' position. 

4. Approval of Minutes 

PUBLIC COMMENT:

stated that he didn't see his 150-word statement that he had submitted for inclusion in the minutes. 
(Board Secretary Boomer showed him where his statement was inserted in the minutes.) 

David Pilpel requested correction to his comment for Item 9. He requested that the minutes be

Board Secretary Boomer stated that an overflow room was available should the need arise. 

6. Introduction of New or Unfinished Business by Board Members 

Director Lee requested information regarding the SFMTA's role in managing public garages and lots. 
Director Heinicke arrived. 

7. Executive Director's Report (For discussion only) 

-Special Recognition Award 
-Ongoing Activities 

Exec. Director/CEO Ford presented special recognition awards to Ha Nguyen, project engineer, Capital 
Programs and Construction; Bridget Badasow, receptionist, Office of the SFMTA Board of Directors; 
and Stanley Chan, transit operator, Cable Car Division, Transit Operations. 

ED/CEO Ford also discussed the status of the RFP for management of parking garages. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Hansu Kim stated that the garage contract is about how corruption happens in city government. The 
process was transparent and the SFMTA received good bids. The winning contractor has been patiently 
waiting and wants to know why the contracts haven't been awarded. He expressed the belief that agents 
of losing bidders who currently have contracts have influenced the process. His clients were threatened 
and they will put forth a complaint that addresses this misconduct and that will inform the public about 
what happened. 

Fred Bekele, Convenient Parking, stated that a citizen gets different treatment based on their 
connections. The award of the contracts was not based on merit because his firm clearly won the bid. 
More relevant was how to satisfy the powerful people that threatened them and that manipulated the 
system. Corruption exists in San Francisco. 

David Pilpel reminded the Board that they have exclusive authority over parking garages and facilities. 
The request of the Mayor to the Controller's office didn't originate with the SFMTA Board. The study 
isn't appropriate unless the Board has approved the matter. Assets within the Agency are under the 
SFMTA's exclusive authority. 

8. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 

Daniel Murphy, chairman, Citizen's Advisory Council, reviewed the recommendations of the Citizen's 
Advisory Council. 



Vice Chairman McCray requested a response to the question raised by Mr. Murphy regarding the 
number of service hours. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Peter Witt expressed concern about submitting a ballot measure that would be a "claw to grab more 
money.'" People who don't use Muni would be taxed because parking permits were originally intended 
to create parking spaces for residents but now those funds are used to fund the MTA. Residents who 
drive cars don't take Muni. There are other ways to tap into people who don't use Muni. It's 
outrageous that the SFMTA is constantly grabbing for money. 

Barry Taranto stated that there's a report about meters that doesn't seem to be accurate. It is important 
that meters in commercial districts be extended to 7 pm. There is a lot of double parking in different 
areas of the city. Meters running to 7 pm will make Mum move faster. There is bad publicity out 
there. 

9. Public Comment 

Dave Schneider stated that the Board has jurisdiction over taxis. On January 11, there was a knife 
attack on a cab driver. Cab drivers weren't aware of the incident. He asked for information regarding 
the procedure to notify drivers so that all cab drivers are aware of what happened. He urged the Board 
to schedule a hearing on the matter or to request that a plan be developed to address the situation. This 
will happen again. 

Barry Taranto inquired about the money from the taxi fund. The Board should request documentation 
that the money is put back into the taxi wrap fund. Taxi drivers need to have a set time on SFMTA 
Board agendas. Many drivers won't do radio calls. Having a debt of $250,000 over 15 years is a long 
time to owe money to a financial institution. He would like to know what will happen to the chief 
safety officer position and to enforcement. 

Emil Lawrence stated that he submitted a letter to the Airport Commission regarding their attempt to 
take money for short fees. If the Airport Commission can't make money, the airport should be sold. 
Taxi drivers don't have benefits. Mr. Lawrence stated that his experience outweighs the experience of 
a majority of the Board. He presented a copy of his application to the Mayor to serve as a member of 
the SFMTA Board. 

Tone Lee stated that the airport policy will make cab drivers not go south. The airport needs a shuttle 
policy. Drivers will speed and will put customer's lives at risk. "Short fares" is an attempt to make 
money from cab drivers. 

David Pilpel stated that the Board needs to hear about succession planning. Sam Lau's leaving will be 
a significant loss. Mr. Pilpel is willing to meet with staff to discuss the budget and other matters which 
could head off some disputes. He expressed hope that the Board would schedule a hearing on work 
orders and work rules. He noted that in the past week, there has been a change to the policy regarding 
charging for copies of documents. Previously, people weren't charged for small requests. He stated 



that there needs to be a process to consider financial hardship. The Board should get a comprehensive 
report on the entire budget. 

Peter Witt inquired if they Board has seen his survey and if they had any questions. He has surveyed 
over 1,000 customers per year for the past ten years. A real pilot project should start with ten cabs and 
not sixty. He inquired if the Board read the 2006 study regarding Prop. K and equity for drivers. There 
is nothing about health care, sick leave or retirement for non-medallion holders. He questioned 
whether customers would benefit from even lower income drivers. (Mr. Witt provided written 
comments for inclusion in the minutes that may be found at the end of the minutes.) 

Chairman Nolan asked staff to report back to the Board regarding Caltrain's fiscal situation and what 
the SFMTA has done and what it could do regarding violence to cab drivers. 

THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL 
TRANSPORTATION AGENCY BOARD OF DIRECTORS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR ACTION 
AS STATED BY THE SFMTA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR/CEO OR CITY ATTORNEY WHERE 
APPLICABLE. EXPLANATORY DOCUMENTS FOR ALL CALENDAR ITEMS ARE 
AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW AT ONE SOUTH VAN NESS AVE. SEVENTH FLOOR. 

CONSENT CALENDAR 

10. All matters listed hereunder constitute a Consent Calendar, are considered to be routine by the San 
Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency Board of Directors and will be acted upon by a single vote. 
There will be no separate discussion of these items unless a member of the Board of Directors or the 
public so requests, in which event the matter shall be removed from the Consent Calendar and 
considered as a separate item. 

(10.1) Requesting the Controller to allot funds and to draw warrants against such funds available or will 
be available in payment of the following claims against the SFMTA: 

A. Allstate Ins. vs. CCSF, Superior Ct. #CGC10495832 filed on 1/7/10 for $750 

B. Mario Palomo vs. CCSF, Superior Ct. #8482415 filed on 12/2/07 for $1,500 

C. Mirwella Ramos vs. CCSF, Superior Ct. #476031 filed on 6/5/08 for $3,000

RESOLUTION 10-040 

(10.2) Rescinding the decision to implement a Peak Hour Express Route Premium Monthly Pass and 
Cable Car Premium Monthly Pass. (Explanatory documents include a staff report and resolution.) 
(Sonali Bose) 



Item 10.2 was removed from the Consent Calendar at the request of a member of the public. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel stated that since the Board of Supervisors has already acted to reject the item, this was, as 
a matter of law, not before this body. The Board doesn't need to act and it would be frivolous to do so. 
He urged the Board to table the item. 

RESOLUTION 10-041 

On motion to approve Item 10.2: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, Nolan and Oka 

ABSENT -McCray 

On motion to approve the Consent Calendar (Item 10.2 severed): 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, Nolan and Oka 

ABSENT -McCray 

REGULAR CALENDAR 

1 1 . Presentation and discussion of the SFMTA's Operating Budget for Fiscal Year 201 1 and Fiscal 
Year 2012 including possible increases in various charges or reductions in services to resolve the 
projected budget deficits for FY1 1 and for FY12. (Explanatory documents include a slide presentation.) 
(Sonali Bose) 

Sonali Bose, chief financial officer, presented the staff report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Teresa Sheehan urged the Board not to cut back services and to keep drivers insured. There will be 
problems with attrition because of the freeze due to the shortfall. Part-time drivers will lose benefits. 

Bob Planthold stated that he was impressed at the thoroughness in the range of options presented. He 
cautioned the Board about possible ballot measures. The public doesn't understand the commercial 
parking tax. It is hard to see out the windows when they are wrapped. This is a problem for people 
with disabilities as they can't see stops or landmarks at night. 

David Pilpel stated that there are a lot of moving parts to the budget. His appeal of environmental 
determination is scheduled to be heard by the Board of Supervisors on April 12. There will be a 
significant loss in staffing and knowledge with impending retirements but the retirements will have a 



positive savings in terms of expenses. He requested additional information regarding various 
campaigns included in the budget and whether those campaigns were additive or complimentary. The 
FY10 budget is at significant risk which the Board needs to discuss. TWU has scheduled a straw vote 
of its members. 

Herbert Weiner stated that more buses and drivers are needed to improve Muni. The SFMTA never 
advocates for what they need. The elderly, sick and disabled are traded off. The TEP was a blueprint 
for further cuts. When the economy was booming, services weren't expanded. The SFMTA has served 
business well but it hasn't provided good public service. 

Dave Snyder expressed hope that the SFMTA is moving towards a budget that restores the service that 
was cut. The restoration of service is critical for the future of the city. The SFMTA's budget must be 
approved by the Board of Supervisors. Riders can find seven votes to reject the budget that doesn't 
restore service. 

Sue Vaughan stated that she has created a Facebook page that supports extending parking meter hours. 
The budgets presented to the Board on March 30 and to the CAC on April 5 are different because 
extending parking meter hours in the evening were removed. People who drive will need to pay more. 

Emil Lawrence stated that if prices are raised during an economic downturn that overall revenue will 
decline. There are more and more open meters. Meter maids can't fill their daily quota. People aren't 
shopping in San Francisco which relates to reduced ridership and citations. General accounting 
principles haven't been applied to the budget. 

Art Michel suggested that if cuts in service were needed, then those cuts shouldn't be on major trunk 
lines that are already overcrowded and heavily used. Cuts to those lines will force people off Muni. 

Barry Taranto expressed concern about bus drivers pay. They get paid a lot of money when compared 
to taxi drivers. Drivers need to be held to a standard. Careful consideration must be given to the 
enforcement of meters on Sundays so businesses don't lose money. He requested information 
regarding where the money would come from for the taxicab cost based recovery fees and stated that 
cab drivers should get to keep monies received from taxi penalties and charges. 

Forrest Schmidt expressed ongoing opposition to service cuts. Service cuts haven't seen the light of 
day. Faith in the Board might have been deserved if service had expanded when the budget expanded. 
Rallying people against the bus drivers blew up. The distinction between Muni riders and car drivers 
isn't clear cut. The SFMTA hasn't gone after the rich or big business. 

Peter Witt requested an explanation for revenue generated by taxi service. The pilot program hasn't 
even begun. The projections are too aggressive. He expressed appreciation for the cleaning fees and 
noted that other countries charge $250 to $300 as an incentive to prevent things from happening. The 
money should go to the drivers since they have to clean things up. Raising the price of taxis will lower 
the demand for taxis. 



Chairman Nolan requested that ED/CEO Ford schedule a presentation at the May 4 meeting regarding 
possible ballot measures and provide information to the Board regarding the time schedule, process and 
an analysis so that the Board can have an in-depth discussion. 

12. Presentation and Discussion of the Hunters Point Shipyard Phase 2 - Candlestick Point Integrated 
Development Project and related Transportation elements. (Explanatory documents include a staff 
report.) (Bond Yee) 

Michael Cohen, Director, Mayor's Office of Economic Development, and Peter Albert, manager, 
Urban Planning Initiatives, presented the staff report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Tacora Hollins stated that she has to catch two or more transit lines to get around the city. People 
aren't able to afford the cost of public transit. 

Tera Conroy stated that Muni is expensive and that she would like to see this project built. 

Erik Butler stated that this project is the best for himself, his family and his community and will mean 
more jobs and better education. This project should go forward. 

Gladys Buckner stated that San Francisco Organizing Project leaders have influenced city leaders to 
make better decisions. In May 2008, the city signed an agreement with Lennar to ensure that families 
in neighborhood will benefit. The SFOP is in support of the project. This project doubles the amount 
of affordable housing. Approval will help bring needed resources to the community. 

Tretha Stroughter stated that she was excited about the project and would love to take advantage of it. 

Ari Coleman requested increased safety for children and people with disabilities. Curbs need to be kept 
clear for the elderly and streets have cracks in them. 

Stormy Henry stated that she is proud of the replacement of affordable housing. The southeast sector is 
a stepchild of San Francisco with no good transit. This project will bring resources, including money 
and jobs to the neighborhood. She stated that residents want the southeast sector to look as good as the 
rest of the city. 

David Pilpel stated that the inclusion of Caltrain is a significant improvement to the area. The Board 
should get an update on Caltrain and the city's commitment to it. The transportation element builds on 
the work of the TEP which has not been implemented. Environmental review hasn't begun. He 
expressed hope that extending transit service and the expansion of existing routes doesn't occur at the 
same time as cuts to service in other parts of town. The SFMTA has a history of building new services 
when they have problems maintaining existing service. The Board should weigh system expansion vs. 
system maintenance. 



Arnold Townsend stated that the need for this project is obvious. In every respect, the southeast sector 
of the city has been treated as if it's not part of San Francisco. This project will improve it. It's hard to 
get around the Bayview on public transit. This long overdue project will improve that. 

Javier Marquez stated that there are Spanish and Asian-speaking folks in the Bayview who want the 
opportunity for homeownership and jobs. There is a lot of diversity in the Bayview. 

Gary Banks asked the Board to move the project forward. Transportation is critical to move this 
project forward. The project will open up many opportunities. 

Peter Witt stated that he was horrified and scared when he went to BVHP. The kind of person who has 
been subjected to a low education system and broken families is a human tragedy. It's disgusting that 
people can't be fed and educated. He stated that there has been no thought given to taxis being a part of 
this system and just like the people in the Bayview Hunter's Point, taxis have been left in the cold. 

Dorris Vincent expressed support for the project. The community has had a lot of input into the 
project. There are some problems in the Bayview but people shouldn't buy into the fear that the 
Bayview is a terrible place to go. Ninety-five percent of the Bayview community is doing well. 

Michael Roskie stated that the Board may want to stymie greedy developers. People are poisoning the 
water table. 

13. Authorizing the Executive Director/CEO to execute Amendment One to Contract No. APT 591-01 - 
LRV Doors and Steps Reconditioning and Systems Rehabilitation, with AnsaldoBreda, to perform a 
complete rehabilitation of 34 LRVs for $1 1,996,867 for a total contract amount not to exceed 
$68,749,421, and to extend the term of the contract from five years to six years. (Explanatory 
documents include a staff report, resolution and amendment.) (Carter Rohan) 

Vice Chairman McCray left the meeting. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel expressed support for the item but would like to know if the funds to be used are part of 
the ARRA funds associated with the Airport connector. LRVs are in need of maintenance.

MATERIAL SUPPLIED BY PETER WITT FOR INCLUSION IN THE SFMTA's MINUTES OF 
APRIL 6, 2010. To ensure that the comments are accessible, this material is reproduced exactly as 
written below. A PDF of the comments will be added to the printed meeting minutes. 

Item #9 P.C. 

I assuming you know what a good survey is then you know how much a good one costs to 

produce. Tell me board members have you see my taxi customer survey yet 

Are you sure you have know questions like how I did it ? Over 1 ,000 customers a year, For 

twelve years with a 93+ RETURN RATE SAFTLY. 

It would be negligent with out any valid taxi-customers data to draw from or mechicnizim in place to 

measure negative impacts, that surly will occur, as a result of your unprecedented actions. 

A real pilot program should start with 5 or 10 cabs not 60. And it's not a test without standers. 

Did you read the 2006 study, about Prop. K. and equity for drivers . 

(It's) NOT about MTA which is in direct conflict. Don't be mistaken theres. . . . Nothing about 

health care or sick leave or retirement for the non-medallion holder.

3. Announcement of prohibition of sound producing devices during the meeting. 

Chairman Nolan announced that the ringing of and use of cell phones, pagers and similar sound- 
producing electronic devices are prohibited at the meeting. He advised that any person responsible for 
the ringing or use of a cell phone, pager, or other similar sound-producing electronic devices might be 
removed from the meeting. He also advised that cell phones that are set on "vibrate" cause microphone 
interference and requested that they be placed in the "off position. 

4. Approval of Minutes 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Peter Witt thanked the Board Secretary for posting the minutes and for referring to his 150 word 
statement, however her words were incomplete, taken out of context and misleading. He requested that 
his 1 50 word statement be added to the body of the minutes rather than at the end. 

On motion to approve the minutes of the April 6, 2010 Regular Meeting: unanimously approved 
(Heinicke, McCray-absent). 

5. Communications 

Chairman Nolan stated that he would ask the Board Secretary to call item 1 1 regarding the FY1 1/12 
budget after the Executive Director/CEO report and the report of the CAC Chairman. He noted that a 
special order regarding the taxi items would be heard at 4:30 or as soon thereafter as possible. 

Board Secretary Boomer stated that Item 10.1 E and Item 22 regarding the FY1 1 and 12 capital program 
had been removed from the agenda at the request of staff. 



6. Introduction of New or Unfinished Business by Board Members 

Referring to a letter regarding ads on Muni vehicles for the Census Bureau, Director Beach stated that 
the ads appear to violate the contract that was approved by the Board. He asked staff to research the 
matter and assure the Board that the contract is being adhered to. 

7. Executive Director's Report (For discussion only) 

-Rail Renovation Projects 
-Ongoing Activities 

Directors Heinicke and McCray arrived. 

Exec. Director/CEO Ford discussed Caltrain's financial situation and the status of the rail renovation 
projects. 

Carter Rohan, senior director, Capital Projects and Construction; John Haley, chief operating officer and 
Debra Johnson, director, Administration, Taxi and Accessible Services reviewed the status of the St. 
Francis Circle capital projects. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Forrest Schmidt expressed concern about the information in the SFweekly article and a meeting of 
management at which managers were accused of being "snitches." He wondered if there was any 
examination of the rail renovation projects because if half of the money could be postponed, that money 
could stop the service cuts. He stated that he hasn't heard any outreach regarding the May 8 massive 
cuts. People don't have the information they need to have in order to participate in the process. 

Frank Lara said that in order for an agency to receive funding, it had to prove to be competent to manage 
the funds. The SFMTA is getting money for capital projects while bus service is being dismantled. A 
1 0% service reduction will lead to more reductions. Mr. Lara stated that he has not seen any 
competency in this agency to manage funds. The Board seems to be puppets of the mayor. 

David Pilpel stated that an opportunity to add a third track at St. Francis Circle is being lost and won't 
be revisited for another 20-30 years. Staff has done good job of preparing for the construction work. He 
expressed concern about the increase in demand for motor coaches when other lines are already using 
motor coaches due to problems with the fleet. The Caltrain issue should be discussed by the Board 
because of the impact on transportation and land use. 

Peter Witt stated that service changes, adjustments and rollbacks encourage people to take a taxi or 
"cab-pool". Muni service cuts will help the taxicab industry. He noted that outreach is poured into 
Muni and wondered if there could be an equal outreach for taxis. Taxi customers need to be reached. 
He stated that he was happy that Muni is focusing on the future stability of future operations. 



I rnestine Weiss stated that there's a lot of confusion about NextBus. Customers don't know what is 
going on. The Financial District is the busiest and most congested area in San Francisco. 

S. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 

In the absence of Chairman Murphy, Board Secretary Boomer provided an overview of recent CAC 
recommendations. 

9. Public Comment 

Peter Witt stated that he has surveyed over 1,000 customers per year for the past ten years and has had a 
93% return rate. He has collected 234 samples this year and has 13 years worth of data. He doesn't 
know why the former Taxi Commission didn't like him. He was just the messenger. He wondered 
where the taxi data was. He stated that an independent analysis and survey is called research and is also 
known as customer service. He has received no "thanks" or questions by the Board. He asked that the 
Board see to their fiduciary duty. 

David Pilpel stated that the Board of Supervisors affirmed City Planning' s determination. The 
Transportation Authority asked the SFMTA to further discuss the possibility of reducing the 10% 
service plan. He stated that he continues to be willing to meet with staff which might reduce litigation 
in the future. There is no CEQA clearance for the restoration of service in the budget so there may be 
further appeals. This is the first time that an Operator Sign Up will be a forced and without union 
participation. This signals a new low in labor relations. He requested a schedule for public hearings on 
work rules and work orders and expressed appreciation to Directors Black and McCray. 

THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL TRANSPORTATION 
AGENCY BOARD OF DIRECTORS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR ACTION AS STATED BY THE 
SFMTA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR/CEO OR CITY ATTORNEY WHERE APPLICABLE. 
EXPLANATORY DOCUMENTS FOR ALL CALENDAR ITEMS ARE AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW AT 
1 SOUTH VAN NESS AVE. 7 th FLOOR.

public so requests, in which event the matter shall be removed from the Consent Calendar and

(Sonali Bose) 

Sonali Bose, chief financial officer, presented the report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Bob Planthold said there is something undone in the budget and it includes actions that will create civil 
rights liability. If you reduce service, there will be bigger gaps in time and there will be longer runs. 
Somewhere in the middle third of those runs, the buses will be full and seniors, people with disabilities 
and mothers with children will have to wait for another bus which wouldn't be fair. Their transfer will 
expire because they won't be able to get on the next bus. The SFMTA needs to adjust the time in the 
transfer policy. 

6 



Jacob Coley said there's a problem with mayhem on the buses. There is a need for more police on the 
buses which could be funded by fines. If we were to get rid of stops, people could get to the end of the 
line quicker. It's mean to raise fares for the disabled and for seniors. The SFMTA needs to lower fares 
and get rid of the transfer system. 

Ernestine Weiss expressed concern about the illegal sales of transfers. She stated that she thought she 
had heard something about fare increases not being implemented for two years, and if that's the case, 
she's happy about that. 

Deland Chan urged the Board to serve their community and not take from them. Service cuts hurt some 
communities more than others. A majority of people in Chinatown rely on public transit as a necessity 
and not a choice. At peak hours it is impossible to get on a bus at certain stops. Reducing the frequency 
of buses will subject the community to horrific delays. The Board should reduce police work orders and 
it needs to have progressive revenue measures to address the budget. 

Choi Guang Ze stated that people rely on public transit and they want to see the SFMTA do the just 
thing. He urged the Board not to balance the budget on the backs on those who can't afford it. Service 
cuts will require sacrifice from those who are already pushed to the limit. The budget deficit 
disproportionately hurts those who are the most vulnerable. Public transit is a necessity and not a 
choice. There will be more overcrowding, less service and less safety. 

Wong Hoi Chong, Community Tenants Association, stated that service cuts will reach into their empty 
pockets. He urged the Board not to increase fares or reduce service. 

Feiyi Chen, Chinese Progressive Association, urged the Board not to cut service and wondered why 
those with low-income have to pay whenever there's a deficit. A lot of workers have lost their jobs and 
are facing other cuts. People who work at night will have to wait longer for a bus and it will be unsafe 
for them. Riders are not the cause of the deficit and so the SFMTA shouldn't be cutting their service. 
The problems are internal and they need to be solved. 

Mrs. Sito stated that cutting service and increasing fares will have a big impact on her and her family. 
They take the bus every day and they wait a long time for a bus. The recent BART fare increase has 
created a hard financial situation for her family. 

Jessie Yu states that she spends hours a day on Muni. Another cut to bus service is going to impact her 
life and her work. She urged the Board not to cut service that thousands of people depend on every day. 

Flor Ramos expressed concern about the service cuts, fare hikes and the way that the police are treating 
riders. Fare increases are difficult for people who out of work. Having to pay $70 for a fast pass is 
almost impossible for her and her children. She stated that the police are cataloging immigrants as 
criminals and she is shocked to see how the youth are being taken off the bus. 






Beatrice Herrera said that POWER is part of a bigger coalition of community organizations. They have 
been talking to the Police Department about why they were on Muni buses. They were told that the 
police are there for security but asking people for identification doesn't provide a sense of security on 
the buses. Cutting service is a security issue. More crowded buses will make people angrier because 
they don't have other options. The people don't have the money to pay for the budget crisis. 

Donaji Lona, POWER, stated that the SFMTA has to consider different scenarios when it makes 
decisions that impact the community such as the fact that buses will be full of angry people and buses 
won't be able to pick up people in wheelchairs. Consideration needs to be given to the fact that riders 
are doing everything possible to provide a meal for their family and they sometimes have to choose 
between that and paying for a bus. The communities' priorities should be considered. Public 
transportation should treat people with dignity. All communities will suffer with a 10% cut in service. 
She urged the SFMTA to do all it can to create a safe and accessible system. 

David Hardie stated that he thinks that there should be a limit to the amount of money that anybody who 
works at the SFMTA should make. Nobody should make more than $100,000. 

Doug Hayden, Crocker Galleria Farmer's Market, stated that raising the bagged meter rate by 700% will 
ruin their market and will be a huge burden for the farmers. 

Gail Laghi stated that she is dependent on Muni. Service cuts that are made when schools get out will 
result in buses that are so crowded that people can't get on. If more service is cut on those lines, people 
will have even more trouble getting around. Thought should be given to other areas that can be cut. 

Jonathan North stated that signs on the buses say that the rate for a senior fast pass will increase but he 
had heard that the rate was not going to go up for a couple years. If the rates do increase, it will mean 
that the rates will have doubled in one year. 

Miguel Garcia stated that the use of technology could improve the economy and the transit system 
because people can use a card that would bill them when they don't pay. 

Vincent Martinez stated that whenever somebody misbehaves, they are removed to a sheltered area. At 
the SFMTA, when a Muni driver is removed they keep the same salary. It is not reasonable for 
somebody to be sheltered and still receive the same salary. The SFMTA could save money by having 
drivers who know how to drive the bus rather than destroy it. 

Forrest Schmidt said that the primary concern about the budget is the 10%) service cuts. Information on 
the website is not easy to find and it's hard to read. The lack of detail makes it impossible for the public 
to have any meaningful input into the budget so they are left with the idea that management doesn't 
want it. TWU has fountains of information about how things can be done better. Management tried to 
poison the relationship between labor and the public. 

Frank Lara stated that service cuts will affect many communities and they have had enough. The 
community is upset. They have been presenting their views for months but the SFMTA taking money 
from the poor and oppressed. They aren't taxing the rich.

Marlene Iran urged the Board not to consider fare increases and service cuts. Many seniors are non- 
I oglish speaking. The astronomical management salaries are astounding and they should take a cut in 
salary. Only $500 is allocated for interpreters. She asked the SFMTA to cut waste, restore cuts and 
consider other options. 

David Pilpel stated that the Controller's Report on work orders is pending and the Board should see that 
report before acting on the budget. The details of the budget have not been made available instead the 
Agency has decided to charge for duplication of records. The FY10 budget has not been balanced and 
the FY1 1/12 budgets rely on FY 10. Items in the resolution should be segregated. There is no 
information about how the youth pass would work. The calendar item authorizes the Exec. Director to 
set fares but that is for the Board to do. The Transportation Authority clearly wants a lower level of 
service reductions. He is not aware that environmental review has been done for the service 
restorations. The budget should be continued to a special meeting. 

Herbert Weiner stated that Mr. Ford and the SFMTA Board need to be better managed. Seniors and 
people with disabilities will be hurt. The Mayor has a limousine that should be taken away because it is 
underutilized. People need bus service more than the Mayor needs his limousine. These cuts are 
poison. Corporations should be taxed instead. 

Emil Lawrence stated that the SF Weekly article was scary and goes beyond anything he had envisioned. 
The Board may have crossed the line for accounting fraud. In a world-wide contraction that affects 
everybody, the Board is not doing its job. Executive management salaries are above what anybody 
envisioned. There have been no cuts in overtime, in premium time or to pensions, instead there have 
been service cuts and an increase in citations. 

David Snyder stated that it was promising to see so many people in the audience who were opposed to 
the service cuts as it shows that they can stop the cuts. Making the cuts permanent is inexcusable and 
irresponsible and it makes the Mayor and the Board hypocrites. He provided options to the proposed 
reductions in service. 

James Bryant, SEIU 1021, stated that subway staffing is crucial. In the 1989 earthquake, station agents 
rescued and brought citizens out of the tunnel. They are the first line of defense. Station agents are 
retiring and being laid off. He asked the Board to look into this staffing problem. 

Christine Pyston stated that people's income has been cut but the disabled pass is going up by another 
$5. She thought there was a promise that the price wasn't going to be increased. This is a shame. 

Victor Gresser stated that not only do Muni employees ride Muni for free but their families do as well. 
The most discount he ever received was 20% so he doesn't understand "free". People can get 
information about bus service for free by calling "5 1 1 " yet kiosks advertise "3 1 1 ." Calling "5 1 1" could 
possibly save $5. 4m a year. Legal fees could be reduced by 25%, saving another $3. 3m. The SFMTA 
needs to think about the safety of people on the bus as it considers these cutbacks. 



Barry Taranto questioned the cost-based recovery fees and taxi fees. Driving a cab in San Francisco is 
not like New York City. Bus drivers should get paid well. The problem is with managers who hire 
people who aren't nice. The SFMTA should have a better screening process. Drivers who don't show 
up for work shouldn't get paid. 

David Varnum stated that the budget proposals will drive people to their cars. In February, the Board 
drastically increased disabled placard fines but they left other fines untouched. The SFMTA has 
proposed a double digit increases in fares and service cuts. This isn't equitable. The Board should 
increase all parking violations by $20-$30 or increase all to $100. It should increase vehicle registration 
fees, expand parking meter hours and locations in order to properly fund Muni and keep San Francisco a 
livable city. 

Emily Lee, Chinese Progressive Association, stated that service cuts will affect a lot of members in 
Chinatown. Cuts will disproportionately affect low income families. People will have to wait longer for 
a bus that is already overcrowded. The number of buses need to be increased to improve safety. Cuts 
should be made to the police work order and the police should get out of "proof of payment" inspection. 

Mark Gruberg stated that he couldn't access the budget details. The public shouldn't have to seek the 
information out two or three days in advance of the meeting. He expressed hope that the Board 
wouldn't vote on the budget and there will be more opportunity to review it. He can't understand why 
there would be increases to taxi fees when there are millions of dollars in taxi medallion sales revenues. 
These increases are unwarranted. 

Alvin Sered stated that the budget needs refinement. The city is paying big money for NextMuni. 
He hopes that the CAC has reported on the limitations ofNextMuni.com. It would be nice if, at transfer 
points, drivers could honk their horn to let the other bus driver know that there are passengers who want 
to transfer to that bus. 

Jessie Yu urged the Board not to cut services. Working class families have been asked to pay more. 
The police shouldn't be doing fare inspections. 

Peter Witt said that he hadn't noticed the increase in taxi fees. It seems that all that the SFMTA is 
concerned about is its' own income. Taxi drivers don't have any representation. UTW is not a union. 
For the last five to ten years taxi drivers haven't had a raise. He questioned how taxi drivers could 
possibly afford to live in one of the most expensive places in the world without a raise. 

Shane said that the Board is not doing its job. Stuffing people onto one car during rush hour is 
impossible. He would like a vote of no confidence in the Executive Director/CEO. Mr. Ford and Mr. 
Haley should be ashamed that people are begging for a dollar to ride a bus but they take $550,000 home 
in salary every year. 

Chairman Nolan closed public comment and asked staff to provide information about the transfer policy 
in light of the service cuts and about 3 1 1 vs. 5 1 1 .

12. Presentation and Discussion regarding the FY2010 Q2 Service Standards Report. (Explanatory 
documents include a staff report and scorecard.) (Sonali Bose) 

Items 1 2 and 1 3 were called together. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

David Pilpel sated that the CAC reviewed the item. A 2% increase in ridership is unrealistic if service 
reductions take effect. Projections in the budget show that ridership has stayed the same or declined. 
He suggested that the figures be reconciled. He supports the items.

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Black, Heinicke, Lee, McCray, Nolan and Oka 

SPECIAL ORDER - 4:30 pm 

14. Approving and adopting amendments to Article 1 100 of Division II of the Transportation Code, 
regulating Motor Vehicles for Hire to implement regulations governing the purchase and sale of Taxi 
Medallions as part of the Taxi Medallion Sales Pilot Program. (Explanatory documents include a staff 
report, resolution and amendments.) (Debra Johnson) 

Items 14 and 15 were called together. 

Christiane Hayashi, deputy director, Taxi Division, presented the staff report. Steven Stapp, San 
Francisco Federal Credit Union, discussed the service that they would be providing. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Barry Taranto expressed disagreement with the $250,000 price for a medallion. Detailed information 
should have been provided. Having a term of 1 5 years for a loan defeats the purpose of the program. 
People who have been on the list for 10 years will die before the 15 year term is over. The SFMTA 
needs to study how much a cab generates per month so they would know how much money a cab driver 
takes home and therefore how much a driver could pay for a loan. 

11 



Barry Gruberg stated that having three days notice to review the material and then talk intelligently 
doesn't work. He noted a drafting error that says that if someone doesn't accept the medallion that's 
offered that they would be removed from the list. There's a huge potential for cab companies to get into 
the act. Falling medallion prices could have dire consequences for drivers and for the public. This is 
not thought through. 

Murai opined that Ms. Hayashi has done a beautiful job of getting various parts working together in a 
smoother way. People shouldn't be taken off the list if they refuse a medallion. Staff listened to all sides 
and brought the industry to consensus. She added that while she liked the old way with no driving 
requirement, this is the best thing we can come up with for right now. 

Jerald Joseph stated that his firm offers financial loans. San Francisco Urban was started to give back 
to communities and to first time home buyers. They have a successful track record. Home buying and 
buying a medallion is similar. They would work closely with lenders to ensure that taxi drivers 
complete an accurate and complete loan packet and ensure that the process is smooth and clear. 

Ed Healy stated that the legislation specifically says that if somebody doesn't want to sell their 
medallion, they would maintain their place on the list. There's been a lot of misinformation and a false 
impression given about this. This plan has been analyzed for six months but that doesn't mean that this 
is the "end all and be all". The loan amount could be paid by a driver. They have worked hard to ensure 
that people on the list would be able to get their medallion without paying for it if they didn't want to. 

Charles Rathbone expressed support for the pilot program. The main concern continues to be an exodus 
of medallions away from cab companies who have provided a great bulk of the service to neighborhoods 
and to the disabled. 

Carl Macmurdo stated that fundamental change was needed. There are major liability and safety issues 
with elderly drivers. This change allows drivers to go to lenders and builds equity for the future. 

Tara Housman stated that this shouldn't have been scheduled on the same day as the budget. People 
can't speak intelligently in two minutes. The language that says that a driver who can't complete 
financing will be removed from the waiting list should be struck. She expressed hope for leniency for 
the full time driving requirement. She questioned the fine for using non-emergency dispatch devices 
when a passenger was in the car. 

Robert Cesana expressed appreciation for bringing the pilot program to this point. This is tremendously 
important because of the high percentage of older drivers who have no incentive to give up their 
medallion until they have a major health problem or are involved in an accident. Cab drivers are well 
established, they have houses and they have been leasing medallions for many years. The dire 
predictions are not true. Staff has bent over backwards to make sure that nobody will be excluded. 



12 



Dan 1 linds stated that this program directly addresses the problem with elderly and disabled drivers and 
is a tremendous opportunity for people on the waiting list who have the chance to get a medallion years 
sooner. They'll be able to acquire it at a substantially reduced rate and at the end of the process, they 
will own it. This transforms the system from people who are waiting for a medallion to investors. 

Hansu Kim expressed appreciation for the SFMTA's leadership. He stated that he has never seen the 
level of transparency and stakeholder input than for this pilot program. All key concerns have been met. 
There are ways for the elderly and sick to exit, for other cab drivers to obtain a medallion and provide 
money for the city. 

Jim Gillespie stated that he drove a cab for 29 years before he became a medallion holder and has had a 
medallion for 12 years. Medallions used to be transferable. Owners had a pride of ownership and 
service was paramount. This has deteriorated over the past 30 years and going back to that will provide 
better service. 

Peter Witt stated that this plan is poisoning the well and is moving towards a long term leasing program. 
He questioned what kind of ownership there will be if the medallion can be taken away. He wondered 
where the analysis was on the permanent impacts and unintended consequences. He questioned whether 
ramped vans were valueless and if peak time medallions shouldn't be part of the package. Sell 
medallions will hurt taxi service. Board members should drive a cab for one day. The taxi industry isn't 
for amateurs. It's not good to let the foxes watch the hen house. The advisory board are members of a 
corrupt industry. 

Barry Korengold stated that they were originally opposed to the idea but they worked through the issues 
at town hall meetings and so, they decided to compromise. He expressed concern about selling new 
medallions. The SFMTA needs to make sure that a majority of medallions go to the people on the list. 
Most cab drivers don't own houses and are in debt and getting a medallion is a step up. 

Mike Spain stated that this action will be remembered for a long time. Prop K wasn't what people 
thought it would be. There will be bumps moving forward but this Board will change the industry for 
decades. Staff took on this task when nobody wanted to touch it. This change pushes us into the future. 

John Han stated that he likes being a cab driver. Helping people gives him a sense of personal reward. 
The chances are that no matter how good this pilot program may be a lot of drivers won't benefit. The 
wait list to qualify for a medallion is long and it's not reasonable for people who are far down the list. 
Prop. K is only one aspect of the industry overall. He has presented to staff his own ideas about 
creating a secondary class of medallions that could generate revenue for city, help address peak hour 
medallions and allow drivers to own their own cabs. 

Jane Bolig stated that this pilot program will do a lot of things for the industry. It will help older, 
disabled drivers by having a dignified exit strategy. It will provide money to the SFlvlTA and it will 
give younger drivers an opportunity to hold permits and to build equity. It doesn't deal with peak time 
service nor does it deal with the necessity of giving a majority of medallions to certain companies who 
have dispatch services. The Taxi Advisory Council will review those issues and will make 
recommendations. By December, the Council will have recommendations for a better program. 

13 



David Pilpel stated that both items take effect in 30 days. He reviewed suggested changes to various 
pages to make the language consistent. 

Chairman Nolan requested a report regarding a secondary medallion.

Item 9 . 

I've surveyed Over 1 ,000 customers a year, For twelve years with a 93+ RETURN RATE 
I forgot two of last years surveys did any one turn them into lost and found? 

Those were 2009 samples . . . These are 234 collected so far for years survey. 

It started out a simple survey but with 13 years of DATA . . .it's a full blow study. 

I don't know why the TXC didn't like me I'm just the messenger. 
I think the data speaks for it self. 

Unless your deaf Dumb and blind. 

I see Muni data where 's your taxi-data. What's a peak-time and what's a top light? 

What's dispatch? And what's . . ..a taxi stand? 

Merely . . .a preliminary study . . ..It identifies and pin points where the problems are 
...and aren't ! 

With an independent analysis and follow-up study. 

It's called . . ."Research and Development".

3. Announcement of prohibition of sound producing devices during the meeting. 

Chairman Nolan announced that the ringing of and use of cell phones, pagers and similar sound- 
producing electronic devices are prohibited at the meeting. He advised that any person responsible 
for the ringing or use of a cell phone, pager, or other similar sound-producing electronic devices 
might be removed from the meeting. He also advised that cell phones that are set on "vibrate" 
cause microphone interference and requested that they be placed in the "off position. 

4. Approval of Minutes 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Peter Witt stated that the Board isn't concerned about the posting of minutes and that his 
statements are incomplete, out of context and misleading. The words "cost effective" and "more 
efficient" were not included in his comments. Mr. Witt objected to the order in which the 
minutes are posted and the order in which the Board conducts its agenda. Both are misleading to 
the public. Item 8 started 39 minutes after the meeting began and Item 9 started 4 hrs 46 minutes 
after the meeting started. The SFMTA shouldn't expect people to wait five hours to offer 
solutions. 

On motion to approve the minutes of the April 20, 2010 Regular Meeting: unanimously approved 
(Heinicke-ab sent) . 

5. Communications 
None. 

6. Introduction of New or Unfinished Business by Board Members 

-Election of Vice Chairman 

1 



No public comment. 

On motion to elect Jerry Lee as Vice Chairman: unanimously approved (Heinicke-absent.) 

7. Executive Director's Report (For discussion only) 

-Special Recognition Award 
-Ongoing Activities 

Exec. Director/CEO Ford presented special recognition awards to Jack Lucero Fleck, traffic 
engineer, Sustainable Streets and Joern Kroll, transportation safety specialist, Safety & Training 
division. 

Director Heinicke arrived. 

ED/CEO Ford also discussed the SFMTA's FY1 1/12 budget hearings at the Board of 
Supervisors, the performance audit, the SFCTA funding request, the St. Francis Circle rail 
replacement project, system security, the fare gate improvement project, Bike to Work Day, and 
the annual employee survey. 

Chairman Nolan asked for a hearing on May 1 8 to discuss the performance audit. 

Debra Johnson, director, Administration, Taxis and Accessible Services reviewed the 
communications plans for the St. Francis Circle project, the Proof of Payment program and the 
May 8 service changes. 

John Haley, director, Transit Operations reviewed the St. Francis Circle project and the 
operations plan for the May 8 service changes. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Peter Witt stated that long time taxi drivers should be recognized. The former Taxi Commission 
presented driver of the year awards. He is disturbed that since the change to the SFMTA, several 
things have been eliminated that the former Taxi Commission did. Driving a taxi is a far more 
dangerous job than Muni. Taxi companies should recognize drivers. 

8. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 
No report. 

9. Public Comment 



Hob Planthold expressed concern that the SFMTA seems to be unaware of timing. He believes 
that there has been an ethics violation regarding ballot measures and that the Agency doesn't 
have the respect or trust of the people who need it to be reliable. If the Agency is involved in a 
ballot measure, that measure will fail. It shouldn't be talked about it in public. 

Peter Witt stated that customers ask him about the purpose of his customer surveys. It's for 
customer service and to see if city hall cares about service or customers. The last taxi 
commission survey was peppered with anecdotal testimony with no hard data. Drivers aren't 
represented. He asked when drivers would get a cost of living adjustment. This governing body 
speaks, sees, and hears no evil and wears no clothes. The facts speak for themselves. Drivers are 
men and women too. 

1 Ierbert Weiner apologized to Mr. Ford. He asked what management was sacrificing in pay cuts. 
He suggested that meetings be held in the evening as well as at noon. Managers should pay a 
penalty for every missed run. Muni ambassadors should be the eyes and ears of the SFMTA and 
should not be conveying messages. 

THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL 
TRANSPORTATION AGENCY BOARD OF DIRECTORS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR 
ACTION AS STATED BY THE SFMTA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR/CEO OR CITY ATTORNEY 
WHERE APPLICABLE. EXPLANATORY DOCUMENTS FOR ALL CALENDAR ITEMS ARE 
AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW AT 1 SOUTH VAN NESS AVE. 7 th FLOOR.

documents include a slide presentation) (John Haley) 



John 1 laley, director. Transit Operations and Joy Houlihan, deputy director, Security & 
Enforcement presented the staff report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Bob Planthold expressed concern about the amount of time allotted for a transfer now that 
service is going to be reduced. On long distance lines the bus may be crowded. The customer 
might not be able get on and will end up having to wait for a second bus which might cause the 
transfer to expire. Seniors who aren't as agile as other customers might have to pay twice 
because of an expired transfer. The SFMTA should consider changes to transfer time. 

Herbert Weiner stated that he's noticed other areas, such as Polk, Clay, Powell and Geary where 
fare evasion occurs. The Agency needs to be a little more comprehensive in scope and research. 

SPECIAL ORDER - 1 :30 pm 

13. Adopting amendments to Transportation Code, Division II, Article 1 100 governing Motor 
Vehicles for Hire, to amend regulations governing the Taxi Medallion Sales Pilot Program to 
further define the circumstances under which a Medallion Holder is eligible to sell his or her 
Medallion, and to clarify that failure to timely complete the purchase of a Medallion does not 
affect the applicant's A-Card Seniority or the applicant's position on the Waiting List. 
(Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution and amendments) (Debra Johnson) 

Chris Hayashi, deputy director, Taxi Services, presented the staff report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Mark Gruberg, UTW, stated that the amendments are needed and are an improvement. UTW 
continues to oppose this program. UTW believes that access to a city permit should not be 
substantially limited to those who can pay for the privilege. This may be a positive thing in the 
eyes of financial institutions but there has been much deceit. He was astonished that no one on 
the Board has questioned this program.

3 . Announcement of prohibition of sound producing devices during the meeting. 



Chairman Nolan announced that the ringing of and use of cell phones, pagers and similar sound- 
producing electronic devices are prohibited at the meeting. He advised that any person responsible 
for the ringing or use of a cell phone, pager, or other similar sound-producing electronic devices 
might be removed from the meeting. He also advised that cell phones that are set on "vibrate" 
cause microphone interference and requested that they be placed in the "off position. 

4. Approval of Minutes 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Peter Witt stated that he doesn't see any reference to his 150-word statement in the minutes but he 
does see extra words omitted. He asked whether it wouldn't be easier and less work if his 
statement would be included after his name. 100 extra words were omitted from his public 
comment on Item 9. Mr. Witt reviewed the words that were missing. The minutes are misleading 
if there is no reference to his written statements. 

Mark Gruberg stated that he was looking at the April 20 th meeting. He was referred to as Barry 
Gruberg so he requested that his name be corrected. 

On motion to approve the minutes of the May 4, 2010 Regular Meeting: unanimously approved. 

5. Communications 

Board Secretary Boomer stated that Item 13 regarding the performance audit had been removed 
from the agenda at the request of staff. 

6. Introduction of New or Unfinished Business by Board Members 



Director Beach stated that staff had previously indicated that the speed in the Twin Peaks Tunnel 
would be raised effective May 1. This did not occur. He requested that staff bring a report to the 
Board within the next two months. He also requested that a discussion regarding funding of 
Caltrain be agendized for a future meeting. 

Chairman Nolan requested that the recent memo regarding taxi driver safety be provided to Dave 
Schneider. 

7. Executive Director's Report (For discussion only) 

-Special Recognition Award 
-Ongoing Activities 

Executive Director/CEO Ford presented special recognition awards to Julio Orozco, car cleaner, 
Green Maintenance Division, Transit Operations; Sheila Feliciana, transit operator, Flynn 
Division, Transit Operations; Tammy Scott, transit operator, Potrero Division, Transit Operations; 
and Marina Villena, Accessible Services, Administration, Taxi and Accessible Services. 

Exec. Director/CEO Ford "sunshined" labor agreements between the SFMTA and IBEW Local 6, 
TWU Local 200, and TWU Local 250 for automotive service workers and transit fare inspectors. 

Mr. Ford also discussed the SFMTA' s FY10 budget; SFpark implementation, the FTA triennial 
audit; rehabilitation of SFMTA vehicles; the status of capital projects at St. Francis Circle and at 
Church and Duboce; the hiring of an executive director for the High Speed Rail Authority. 

No public comment. 

8. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 

Daniel Murphy, chairman, Citizen's Advisory Council, presented the report. 

Chairman Nolan requested a report regarding the number of CAC recommendations that have been 
accepted by the SFMTA. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Peter Witt wondered if the CAC gives taxi advice and how the Board gets public input. Maybe the 
public doesn't know that the SFMTA took over the taxis. Maybe the public doesn't have any 
complaints. Nevertheless, there is no public input. Maybe the CAC should get a copy of his 
survey that he's been doing every year for the past 13 years. The public can take a taxi to Coit 
Tower in addition to a bus. 

9. Public Comment 



Mark Oruberg stated that he recently found a notice of public hearings for the sale of taxi 
medallions. This notice was put up on May 27 th for a hearing on the 28 th . The notice doesn't 
contain the names of the recipients who will to be considered. There are other hearings scheduled 
this week. In the code, there is a provision for a 30-day notice and a 3-day notice. This one 
month notice is really important. People can't tell in three days if a person is qualified for a 
medallion. This looks like they're trying to pull a fast one. 

Emil Lawrence expressed agreement with Mr. Gruberg. There has been a lack of due process. 
Part of the problem with the CCSF/SFMTA bankruptcy is that there are unqualified individuals 
who are dealing with the unions. He inquired about Ms. Johnson's background and stated that the 
unions will wipe the floor with her as they've done in the past. Hundreds of people have told him 
that he's the only one who is asking the right questions. 

Bob Planthold spoke about continued instances of unresponsiveness to accessible issues. He has 
spoken about bicycles at bus stops for months yet nothing has been done. There is a mid-block 
curb ramp in front of a middle school that is confined to weekday use when school is in session but 
the school is a polling place as well as a site for NERT training drills and weekend activities. He 
gets no answers from the SFMTA, the Mayor's office on Disability or the Department of Public 
Works. Those agencies aren't talking to each other. 

Herbert Weiner asked why the meetings were being held at noon rather than at 2 pm and why 
public testimony is being limited to two minutes when the public previously had three minutes. 
The reason is due to the Board's fear of the public. This is undemocratic but not surprising. 

Barry Taranto stated that it's absurd to limit the public to two minutes. It robs the public of their 
chance to speak. He expressed concern about what Mark Gruberg said. The former Taxi 
Commission put out a notice ahead of time about medallion issuances and changes to color 
schemes. The public and the industry need the same leeway. He will urge the Mayor to put Dr. 
McCray back on the Board because he represented parking and traffic issues. He asked about 
enforcement reports and the article in the SF Weekly about the Parking Authority. 

Peter Witt presented the 1 3 annual customer survey and provided each Board member with a 
week's worth of surveys. He hopes the Board appreciates it. He has years of empirical data from 
a thousand customers per year that show the facts and the dysfunctions. This is hard data that puts 
the finger on the pulse. (Mr. Witt provided a written statement of less than 150 words which are 
attached to these minutes.) 

Rua Graffis stated that a "Tea Party" is needed in San Francisco where they agree to not be taxed 
without representation. While she understands the SFMTA' s budget crunch, it's no reason not to 
follow due process with regard to public notice. 

THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL 
TRANSPORTATION AGENCY BOARD OF DIRECTORS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR

ATTORNEY WHERE APPLICABLE. EXPLANATORY DOCUMENTS FOR ALL

RESOLUTION 10-077 

On motion to approve the Consent Calendar (Items H, I, U, V, W and LL severed): 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Heinicke, Lee, Nolan and Oka 

REGULAR CALENDAR 

11. Presentation and Discussion of the Compliance Review of the SFMTA's Work Orders for 
Fiscal Year 2009. (Explanatory documents include the audit and response) (Sonali Bose). 

Tonia Lediju, Controller's Office, presented the staff report. 

Director Heinicke requested that staff report back in a month regarding the status of SFMTA's 
efforts to secure written MOU's with city departments including a clear scope of work, billing and 
accountability process. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Bob Planthold stated that there is some inconsistent information provided. The numbers are not 
carefully explained. The Board is not asking what it is getting for the increases. He didn't hear 
what the plan was to shift people to 5 1 1 and whether there was a projected reduction for 3 1 1 calls. 
He invited people to attend a meeting to explain the work orders. 

Barry Taranto stated that the report is well prepared and he appreciates the question on who has the 
authority regarding payment. The Board of Supervisors is concerned about Muni paying for things 
that it may not be getting. Privately, if people don't pay they may be taken to court but this can't 
be done with city departments. The SFMTA is paying "gobbles" of overtime to the police but 
they're not doing anything. 

Herbert Weiner stated that he shares the Board's concern about work orders. They should be 
thoroughly reviewed before they are signed. Work orders have not been adequately written. 

12. Presentation and discussion of an Independent Audit of the SFMTA's Financial Statements. 
(Explanatory documents include the audit.) (Sonali Bose) 

Sonali Bose, Chief Financial Officer and Steve DeVetter, KPMG, presented the staff report. 



PUBLIC COMMENT: 

1 mil I awrence stated that he would like to have the documents that show what was taking place 
and what numbers were provided to the auditors. He inquired about an Examiner article that says 
there is a $22m problem with the Mayor and whether that was included in the audit. This audit is 
a total whitewash of the SFMTA's budget. The Board's position is to create transparency for the 
public. He requested documents a month ago but is still waiting to receive them. 

13. Presentation and Discussion of the Limited Scope Performance Audit of the San Francisco 
Municipal Transportation Agency. (Explanatory documents include the audit and response.) 
(Brenda Walker) 

Item 1 3 was removed from the agenda at the request of staff. 

14. Presentation, discussion and possible action regarding possible ballot measures that will 
generate revenue for the SFMTA. (Explanatory documents include a staff report and resolution.) 
Sonali Bose) 

Sonali Bose, Chief Financial Officer, presented the staff report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Bob Planthold expressed support for asking the Board of Supervisors to put the Commercial 
Parking tax on the ballot. The SFMTA should also ask the Board of Supervisors to consider 
including the SFMTA as a recipient of a portion of the increase to the hotel tax. He stated that he 
is uneasy about the vehicle license fee. It requires legislative approval and can be held hostage 
and therefore it may be impolitic and untimely to pursue. This isn't the same economy as when 
the Commercial Off-Street Parking tax last failed. 

Tim Leonoudakis urged the Board not to pursue an increase to the Commercial Off-Street Parking 
tax. This lost by a 63% majority in 2006 and polls show that this isn't wanted and is punitive. 
There are other places to look for the money such as SFpark and demand pricing. "Transit First" 
development hasn't been enforced. Before rolling out new taxes, the SFMTA should collect 
existing taxes. 

Chairman Nolan moved that the SFMTA Board of Directors urge the Board of Supervisors to seek 
voter approval to increase the Vehicle License Fee from 1.15% to 2% and increase the 
Commercial Off-Street Parking Tax from 25% to 35%: 

RESOLUTION 10-078 

On motion to approve a resolution urging the Board of Supervisors to seek voter approval to 
increase the Vehicle License Fee from 1.15% to 2% and increase the Commercial Off-Street 
Parking Tax from 25% to 35%: 






ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Lee, Nolan and Oka 
NAYES - Heinicke 

15. Approving the following trial parking modifications: 

A. ESTABLISH -- NO PARKING ANYTIME, SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS, MAY 
THROUGH SEPTEMBER, EXCEPT AREA A PERMITS [TRIAL] - Coit Tower Parking 
Lot at the terminus of Telegraph Hill Boulevard (the Monday through Friday regulations

B. RESCIND - 30-MINUTE LIMIT, 8 AM TO 9 PM, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, MAY 
THROUGH SEPTEMBER, EXCEPT AREA A PERMITS [TRIAL] - Coit Tower Parking 
Lot at the terminus of Telegraph Hill Boulevard (the Monday through Friday regulations 
would remain the same). (Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution and 
traffic counts.) (Bond Yee) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Barry Taranto stated it is important to make a provision for taxis to park at Coit Tower so tourists 
and visitors will be welcome. 

RESOLUTION 10-079 

On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Heinicke, Lee, Nolan and Oka 

16. Amending Transportation Code, Division II, Article 1 100 governing Motor Vehicles for Hire, 
to authorize taxi drivers to charge $0.75 for payments made by credit or debit card, and authorizing 
a taxi company to collect $0.75 from a taxi driver for any credit or debit card transaction that the 
taxi company processes through the company's credit card merchant account. (Explanatory 
documents include a staff report, resolution and amendment.) (Debra Johnson) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Mark Gruberg expressed concern about the item. There is no question that the use of credit cards 
has increased but he is not sure that this is the way to solve the problem. It may put off customers. 
As a matter of safety, he would like to encourage the use of credit cards so a driver carries less 
cash but this fee may come out of the drivers' tip. There could be issues for cab companies. He 
would rather see this go into a discussion of gates and meter rates. 

Barry Taranto stated that the use of credit cards has increased but wondered if $0.75 is enough. 
The amount is not enough to cover the cost of having to get cash back or revenue back from 
processing the transaction. The language should say "for each" not "any". 



10 



Charles Rathbone stated that at Luxor, credit card processing charges are going through the roof. 
A $3 per shift fee would be sufficient to cover the costs but his real preference would be to manage 
these costs through the gate fee. Although he has been pressing Ms. Hayashi to do something 
about credit card costs, he is not going along with this increase. He suggested that this matter be 
referred to the Taxi Advisory Committee. 

Rua Graffis stated that the way the legislation was written means that this charge could also be put 
onto debit cards. She wants to make sure it's not allowed to be added to the paratransit debit card 
or this will wind up with a lawsuit. The whole idea is disturbing. At Green cab, the company eats 
the fee and other companies can do the same thing. 

At the direction of Chairman Nolan, Item 16 was returned to staff for additional discussion with 
the community. 

17. Informational presentation and discussion regarding the SFMTA's policy regarding time limits 
at parking meters and residential permit parking areas. (Explanatory documents include a staff 
report.) (Bond Yee) 

No public comment. 

1 8. Authorizing the Executive Director/CEO to exercise the option to extend the term of the 
contract by approving the "Amended and Restated Service Agreement and Property Use License 
for Towing, Storage and Disposal of Abandoned and Illegally Parked Vehicles" with TEGSCO, 
d.b.a. San Francisco AutoReturn for a five-year term, until July 31, 2015. (Explanatory documents 
include a staff report, resolution, and agreement.) (Sonali Bose) 

No public comment.

Good moring Go- lie- th

Here is the 13 th S. F. Taxi Customer Survey I've sponcered. 
I broke it down by the week and each of you board members

months and 1,038 customers responced. It took about 6 hours 
to make a copy for you. I hope you can appreachate it. Do 
you know how much a marteking firm would charge for that. 
Let alone.... Thirteen years of imperical data. 

I'm just the messenger., so it must be the messeage that rings 
true, from 1,000 customers year after year after year. 

What are the facts and what are the disfuntions your

Tom Nolan 
Bruce Oka

transfers and "Proof of Payment" on the rubber tire fleet. 

Vice Chairman Lee requested information regarding how the SFMTA maintains its' parts 
inventory. 

7. Executive Director's Report (For discussion only) 

-"Sunshine" Labor Agreements 
-Ongoing Activities 



Exec. Director/CEO Ford discussed the status of the FY11/FY12 budget. 

Director Heinicke arrived. 

Exec. Director/CEO Ford "sunshined" labor agreements with IAM 1414, MEA, SEIU and TWU 
Local 250-A for transit operators. He also noted that item 10.8 and 10.9 on the Consent 
Calendar needed to be severed. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Rafael Cabrera expressed shock that neither the SFMTA nor the Mayor had contacted him regarding 
a revote. The members rejected the tentative agreement so things will stay the way they are. 

8. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 
No report. 

9. Public Comment 

Matt Gonzales stated that his firm is representing Fred Bekele who won the garage contract 
through a transparent bid process. There was heavy influencing and lobbying which is 
suggestive of old fashioned "influence pedaling." This matter could be addressed in the courts 
but that method is unsatisfying when results could be gotten sooner. The Board should 
reconsider this item. Citizens don't want a fair and transparent bid process to be set aside. 

Hansu Kim stated that the SFMTA is going through with a new bid process with bids expected 
within a week. The new Request for Proposals will almost double the SFMTA' s costs and 
interim management costs. Progress made with the Human Rights Commission to allow local, 
small businesses to participate is gone. This will cost upwards of $lm to do over. There was a 
transparent bid process with plenty of bidders that Mr. Bekele won. Current contractors have 
influence. 

Fred Bekele stated that his bid was rejected. The Board never voted on the rejection of the RFP 
although staff recommended it. He has been harmed by the SFMTA and the city. He urged the 
Board to do what is right otherwise he will have to protect his rights and pursue a lawsuit. 

Herbert Weiner stated that operators faced an onslaught but they hung tough for which they 
should be proud. He questioned why Board meetings are held at 12 rather than 2 pm and called it 
a violation of the democratic process. 

Mitchell stated that light rail vehicles don't have bike racks so he can't get around the city. He 
requested that bike racks be installed on trains. 



THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL 
TRANSPORTATION AGENCY BOARD OF DIRECTORS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR 
ACTION AS STATED BY THE SFMTA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR/CEO OR CITY 
ATTORNEY WHERE APPLICABLE. EXPLANATORY DOCUMENTS FOR ALL 
CALENDAR ITEMS ARE AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW AT 1 SOUTH VAN NESS AVE. 7 th

Tonia Lediju, director of Audits, Controller's Office, and John Haley, chief operating officer,

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Bob Planthold expressed concern that are only two booths are staffed. Staff should look at 
staffing the fare booths for longer. The SFMTA is missing a fair amount of revenue by not 
staffing the booths to include the rush hour and later into the evening. 

Rafael Cabrera, TWU Local 250A, stated that cable cars are open compartments and are not like 
a bus. Gripmen and conductors have to make sure that people don't fall off. Safety must be the 
main concern. Nobody takes time to appreciate the job that 250A members do. The report 
portrays something that 250 A members are not.

District to address crime and disorder on the San Francisco Municipal Railway. (Explanatory

documents include a staff report, resolution and attachments.) (Bond Yee) 

Michael Cohen, Director, MOED and Peter Albert, manager, Urban Planning Initiatives, 
presented the staff report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Mitchell expressed support for the project. Public transportation will bring more people to the 
Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood. This will create jobs and foster a sense of community. 

Eric Brooks urged the Board to continue the item to the call of the Chairman. The 
environmental documents received scores of comments from people opposed to the EIR. Three 
out of seven planning commissioners were opposed to the EIR. The comments weren't 
responsive to the people or organizations who expressed concern. This land is a Superfund site. 
This EIR will be appealed to the Board of Supervisors therefore the Board should continue the 
item until the BOS weighs in. There was no significant discussion regarding earthquake 
liquefaction and sea level rise. 

Stormy Henry, Alice Griffith Resident, ask the Board to move the project forward. The site has 
been cleaned up by the Navy and we should proceed. The City is well beautified in one part of 
the city and it's time to do the same for the Southeast sector. This project will clean out the 
infestation of drugs and poverty. 

Latasha Beasley stated that she approves this project because the community needs education, 
jobs and housing. This will also bring jobs to the area. 

Kim White stated that she stands for the project. The community needs better housing. Kids in 
other communities get a nice park to play in. Her daughter deserves the same. 

Bradley Bradley expressed support for the project. We must maintain our public transportation 
system so people can get in and out of the shipyard area. This will create jobs and will bring 
tourist activity to the community. 

Jenita Towns stated that this project will help her to have a home and a job. 



Nicolette Webster expressed support for the project. 

Ricardo Contreras expressed support for the project. This will bring jobs and business to the community. 

Ann Huey expressed concern about the length of time it has taken to make a decision about this 
project. This will bring more jobs, business and housing to the neighborhood and will improve 
recreation. This will be better for the city. 

Connie Ford, Vice President, San Francisco Labor Council expressed the Council's support for the 
project. This will connect the community with the rest of the world. 

Tempe Rome expressed support for the project. The community needs buses to help them get to 
jobs throughout the city.

provisions related to SFMTA intra-agency bus-to-bus or bus-to-rail transfers. (Explanatory 
documents include a staff report, resolution and MTC resolution.) (Sonali Bose) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Bob Planthold stated that there is no agreement regarding how to deal with the low income pass. 
People who apply need to be regularly qualified. The media gives the impression that everything 
will go but that's not the case with the low income pass. The SFMTA needs to clarify that the low 
income pass will remain.

Exec. Director/CEO Ford presented special recognition awards to Vernon Ting, automotive 
mechanic, Quality Assurance Division, Transit Services; Frank Markowitz, senior transportation 
planner, Sustainable Streets; Li Zhang, principal administrative analyst and Eloida Leonardo, finance 
manager, Finance and Information Technology. 

Exec. Director/CEO Ford introduced Paul Rose, manager, Media Relations and Reginald Mason, 
director, Safety and Training. 

ED/CEO Ford discussed the status of the speed in the Twin Peaks Tunnel; Caltrain funding; and the 
recent FTA Triennial Review and Audit. 

Debra Johnson, director, Administration, Taxis and Accessible Services provided an update 
regarding the Proof of Payment Customer Information Program. 

Deputy Chief John Murphy reviewed the status of system safely. 

Director Beach requested a copy of the safety report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Genalynn Luna said there are problems with safety because buses are overcrowded especially on the 
14, the 14 Limited and the 49 Van Ness. People are sneaking onto the back and people in 
wheelchairs can't get on. 

Mark Gruberg discussed enforcement against illegal taxicabs and limousines. There is some 
controversy over the use of police and the efficiency of their actions but it makes sense to have in- 
house dedicated enforcement staff that can deal with routine enforcement. 

Hansu Kim discussed taxi and limousine enforcement. Taxis were fully self-funded under the 
former taxi commission. After the merger, it's not as clear as to where taxi funds go and what 
amount goes to regulation and enforcement. Taxicabs and limos are important in a premier tourist 
city such as San Francisco. Mr. Kim expressed interest in knowing where the money goes and how 
it is used. 

Mr. Wright stated that there are four Muni employees who have been doing business agent work for 
the union. This is a violation of state and federal law. Transfers are only good for two hours. 

Frank Lara stated that the numbers in the safety presentation were shocking. The numbers are 
coming down are due to police presence but the police are terrorizing communities. The Board of 
Supervisors says the MTA Board is a rubber stamp. 



C "haii-man Nolan stated that after the CAC Chairman's report, he would ask the Board Secretary to 
call Item 1 1 after which the Board would return to the regular agenda. He noted that Item 13 had - 
been removed from the agenda at the request of staff. 

8. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 

Daniel Murphy, chairman, Citizen's Advisory Council, presented the report. 

9. Public Comment 

Herbert Weiner suggested that the SFMTA spin off the Dept. of Parking and Traffic and restore it as 
a separate entity. The problems with parking are immense. DPT is a source of revenue for Muni but 
Muni should be self sufficient and self financing. This would be in the best interests of the public. 
He stated that Mr. Ford has affirmed that management has taken a pay cut but Mr. Weiner would like 
to see the exact dollar amount. 

Bob Planthold asked that shop and barn staff be rehired. There are too many vehicles that are 
missing the blue and white signs and pull cords at the front. Some operators aren't pulling to the 
curb. This needs to be addressed in training. The special fare gates being installed in the Metro 
stations aren't accessible. 

Frank Lara stated that he has heard that the raids may start again. People have been informed about 
immigrant rights and the saturation raids. The next event will be at Third and Palou. The public is 
tired of seeing people picked by the Mayor. 

Carl Macmurdo stated that the SFMTA has done a wonderful job of creating consensus. Many 
people are left hanging by the medallion sale delays. There are safety and liability issues that will 
continue until the Board acts. This will generate big revenue for the city. 

Dan Hinds stated that people have been working for over a year to make the taxi medallion program 
happen and he doesn't understand why the item was pulled. There are critical industry issues with 
disabled and elderly medallion holders and the city is in need of revenue. 

Mark Gruberg stated that there are myriad issues regarding the well being of drivers, the corruption 
of cab companies and other service issues that are being completely ignored while the medallion 
sales program is mired down. The industry is learning about things at the last minute. Certain people 
in the industry are informed but it's a mystery to the rest. 

Toshia Holloway stated that the 53 and 48 buses were taken away from her community and they 
really need those buses back. They don't have $2 to ride the bus. 

Charles Ross stated that seniors over 55 may be charged a full fare. Sometimes they have to wait 45 
minutes to an hour for a bus especially before 7 am and after 7 pm. Two or three buses that come 
together are of no benefit. Passengers need a break. 



Alvin Sered stated that there is some consideration that the circular structure at La Playa may be 
terminated. He asked the SFMTA to look at the big picture. It will be less stressful on the driver if 
the circular aspect continues, especially if the center is planted. When new vehicles are acquired 
new parts must also be acquired. 

Hansu Kim urged the Board to get moving on the sale of taxi medallions, especially for older and 
disabled drivers. He also expressed concern about losing good lenders. He urged the Board to get 
the Taxi Advisory Council together as soon as possible and to continue the town hall meetings. 

Jane Bolig stated that assuming the taxi medallion program gets going it will have until December to 
prove itself. If it doesn't get underway by August, there will be nothing to analyze in December. 

THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL

RESOLUTION 10-101 

On motion to approve the Consent Calendar:

ABSENT - Heinicke 

REGULAR CALENDAR 

1 1 . Public hearing and action to consider and authorize system- wide transit schedule improvements 
to restore Municipal Railway service to some bus routes and rail lines affected by the May 8, 2010 
service changes. (Explanatory documents include a calendar item, resolution and service restoration 
details.) (John Haley) 

John Haley, director, Transit Services, presented the staff report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Jack Saroyan spoke about the change to the terminus of the 30-Stockton line. It had always been at 
the corner of Broderick and Beach but since May, the terminus is at Chestnut and Divisadero. A 
terminus is a place to load and unload passengers and for an operator can take a break. There is no 
restroom at the new location for operators. 



Fran Taylor stated that the public is not going to say no to restoring 50% of the service but they're 
not idiots. These aren't improvements. Ms. Taylor went to several town hall meetings where people 
said not to cut service but the SFMTA did anyway. The public doesn't trust the SFMTA. 

1 lerbert Weiner stated that getting the cuts back now is better than getting it back later but the 
SFMTA has to address the amputations and decapitations that occurred as part of the TEP. The 
SFMTA should restore the 26-Valencia and the 2-Clement. This is fraudulent public relations but 
the public isn't fooled. 

Frank Lara stated that people don't accept what they are being told and they didn't want service cuts 
or fare increases. People have had enough. They all need the lines. The saturation raids didn't stop 
because there was sympathy for the people who were being terrorized but because of public pressure. 

Gloria Zelman stated that sometimes she has to wait for up to 30 minutes or she has to take a cab. 
She waits at Sutter and Stockton at night. It's too much and it's not right. The public deserves better 
service. 

Eric Scott stated that prior to the service reductions he was comfortable attending events in the East 
Bay but now that service ends at 1 1 pm and there is less frequent owl service, he has a curfew. If 
everything can't be approved, at least approve the recommendation for the F-line and the owl 
service. 

Alvin Sered stated that he was ordered off of a bus because the relief driver didn't show up. He 
wondered why the driver didn't let passengers know in advance so they could strategize about how 
to get where they're going. Technology could be used to assist passengers. The 31 -Balboa line is 
crowded at Turk and Masonic. 

Bob Planthold stated that people want as much service restored as possible. He takes issue with the 
statement that there won't be any further service changes until July 2012. There is a federal bill that 
would allow capital funds to be used for operational purposes. The silence of transit agencies 
supporting this is terrible. There is also a state ballot issue that would prevent raids on transit funds. 

Marlene Tran stated that she had previously asked that the SFMTA not to change the number of the 
bus line and to keep the bus stops on Rutland. She requests that the SFMTA restore the other lines 
but also to restore those four transit hubs. She stated that she is glad to see the restoration of the 9X 
line. The language access issue needs to be addressed She tried to buy a Clipper card but the signs 
were only in English.

12. Approving and adopting amendments to Article 1 100 of Division II of the Transportation Code, 
regulating Motor Vehicles for Hire, to require taxi drivers to accept credit cards, require taxi 
companies to cash credit card payments at no cost to drivers; provide a pro-rated Medallion Sale 
Transfer Fee schedule; and authorizing the SFMTA to waive Transportation Code Division II, 
Section 1 106(p)(6), prohibiting color schemes from passing on credit card merchant account 
processing fees to taxi drivers under certain conditions. (Explanatory documents include a staff 
report, resolution and amendments.) (Debra Johnson) 

Christiane Hayashi, deputy director, Taxi Services presented the staff report. 



PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Mark Gruberg stated this allows a charge to be passed onto the driver. This has been prohibited 
since the Mayor was a supervisor. There is nothing in the code that allows for the resolution to pass 
these charges along. Mr. Gruberg asked who would bear the brunt of the fee waiver. This tiny bone 
that is being given to the drivers is being taken away. 

Carl Macmurdo stated that credit card fees escalated greatly for companies. The question is whether 
these fees are passed along to drivers or to the public. This makes sure that passengers pay the fee. 

Dan Hinds stated that credit cards affect his company. Drivers used to deal with "knuckle-busters". 
The industry came together to fund a debit card project and give all drivers and customers credit-card 
capability. The popularity of these devices has created significant costs. Companies are looking for 
an opportunity to recoup costs. 

Jane Bolig stated that for years, credit card costs have not been that great but with more companies 
installing credit card machines, the costs have gone higher than anyone could have anticipated. 
Credit cards are a benefit to drivers and customers and people are willing to pay a fee for the 
convenience. 

Hansu Kim stated that the SFMTA has been moving toward a medallion plan that has foundered for 
years. The SFMTA has been successful with the paratransit debit card program. Installing a credit 
card reader in every vehicle is beneficial for customers. Transaction costs are enormous. The 
question is what the best way is to recover these fees. This pilot program is a way to evaluate the 
many options. 

RESOLUTION 10-103 

On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Lee, Nolan and Oka 

ABSENT - Heinicke 

13. Adopting amendments to Section 1 109(e) of Division II of the San Francisco Transportation 
Code acknowledging the SFMTA's right to decide that some or all Medallions purchased under the

resolution and amendment.) (Debra Johnson)

SFMTA vehicles is impacting service.

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Peter Witt stated that he was here to help and not hurt. He wants to help save money. He has 
done a survey every year for the past 13 years. The survey he produced will save the MTA 
money. It has a 92% return rate. BART did a survey as well. Taxis have a mandate for on time 
service. Mr. Witt stated that he not a team player for the SFMTA but is for his customers, taxi 
drivers and the public. 

8. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 
No report. 

9. Public Comment 

Martin MacClain stated that he has experienced a situation where a Residential Parking Permit 
was being abused by the agents of the Department of Parking and Traffic. He inquired about 
tickets that he has received for parking in a two hour zone, after 4pm and when the time expires 



at 6jan. (Exec. Director/CEO Ford asked Director of Transit Services John Haley to speak with 
Mr. MacClain.) 

Jamie Whitaker, President Rincon Hill Neighborhood Association, expressed appreciation for the 
additional bike racks. While he appreciates the temporary Transbay Terminal because it will 
increase safety in the neighborhood, the additional right turn on Folsom will increase the 
possibility of pedestrian injuries. He asked the SFMTA to pay attention to pedestrian safety in 
the area especially for children. 

Mark Gleason, Teamsters 665, spoke about the conditions and concerns that tire installers who 
work for an SFMTA subcontractor, Bridgestone brought to their attention. These workers 
describe sub-par conditions. They are paid below market rate for tire installers and they don't 
have access to medical benefits and sick pay. He asked someone in authority to look into the 
situation. 

Herbert Weiner stated that the noise level and traffic congestion created by the change to the 2 
Clement terminus is horrendous. The change was senseless. Staff never consulted with medical 
personnel about the impact to seniors or people who are medically ill about the impact of having 
to walk to the 1 California line. He asked the Board to restore prior service to the area. 

Mark Gruberg stated that there new Taxi Advisory Council appointed by Mr. Ford doesn't have a 
single representative from United Taxicab Workers. UTW has been involved in every major taxi 
issue over the past 20 years and other taxi organizations have appointees. There is not a single 
driver with better credentials than Rua Graffis. He can't fathom why she wouldn't have been 
appointed except for retaliation because UTW was opposed to the medallion sales program. This 
committee is structurally unbalanced towards cab companies. 

Khagendra stated that the Taxi Advisory Council must have real representation for drivers and 
questioned how those who were appointed represented drivers or if they were real drivers. He 
added that Tariq Mehmood's application was ignored. 

Peter Witt stated that concerted efforts are born to fail. Bruce Schaller, who was hired by the 
former Taxi Commission, had recommended that a taxi survey be done. The Controller refused 
the Taxi Commission's offer to conduct a second survey. He inquired about the mandate for 
Muni's on time performance. Mr. Witt provided a blank 2010 Taxi Customer Survey form to the 
Board. 

Tariq Mehmood stated that Ms. Hayashi has a conflict of interest. She forced a lender from New 
York to not participate and got Jordanna Thigpen out. He questioned the Taxi Advisory Council 
selection process and thinks that questionable things were being done. He also questioned the 
driver representatives' ability to represent drivers.

issuing a residential parking permit to childcare providers. She called the policy ridiculous and unsafe. 
Caretakers have to leave children alone for ten minutes every two hours. This is criminal, wrong and 
unsafe. The policy is unbalanced for working families. There are many exceptions to the Residential 
Parking Permit policy. Childcare is essential service. 

Chairman Nolan referred the matter raised by Ms. Stachon to the Policy and Governance Committee. 

Herbert Weiner welcomed Ms. Brinkman to the Board. He also welcomed the partial restoration of 
service that was stolen. He stated that the SFMTA should go beyond that and restore the 26 Valencia 
and the 2 Clement lines. The change to the 2 Clement line wreaked havoc on 15 th Ave. The SFMTA 
thinks primarily in terms of dollars and cents rather than on impact. 



Scan Keighan, Residential Builders Association, stated that permits for new construction are down and 
unemployment is up in the building trades. Both the Mayor and the Board of Supervisors have discussed 
how to stimulate the industry during this difficult time. Bagged meter rates are a new fee. While some 
downtown projects can absorb the fee, smaller projects can't. 

Daniel Phillips stated that he endorsed relocation of the Muni stop at 19 th and Holloway. There are plans 
to take a trolley line into Parkmerced and terminate it two stops further. All of this is contingent on the 
approval of development plans. Builders made a generous offer to fund the construction of the new 
stations and trackways. 

John O'Connor, Residential Builders Association discussed lost meter revenue. The industry can't 
withstand the proposed fees. Transportation and infrastructure fees are already included. The 
construction industry has been really impaired. There was no notification about the increase. There 
should have been stakeholders meetings. He asked the SFMTA to meet with the industry. 

Angus McCarthy, Residential Builders Association, expressed appreciation that the item had been 
continued. Construction workers don't have the luxury of monitoring code amendments through an ad 
placed in the paper so they had short notice. He urged the SFMTA to bring the stakeholders to the table 
to discuss the rates. Everyone is trying to find incentives to get projects off the ground. These rates will 
hurt us. 

Dave Dippel expressed appreciation to the SFMTA for helping to mitigate the problem on 1 5 Ave 
between Geary and Clement. The intersection of Park Presidio and Geary is difficult and problems are 
spilling into the neighborhood. The SFMTA has to address how to allow left-hand turns to and from 
Park Presidio and Geary. It could be accomplished by a left-hand turn from Geary onto Park Presidio 
with a turn similar to the one on Stanyan at Fell.

RESOLUTION 10-121 

Items 10.2 R was severed at the request of a member of the public. 

PUBLIC COMMENT on 10.2 R: 

Marvin Rous stated that he has been opposed to the Residential Parking Permit program from the outset. 
Running the hours on Liberty St. until 9pm is too late. The other issue is the cost of the permit for 
people who live on a fixed income. He suggested that the time be cut from 9 pm to 6 pm and asked for 
help with the cost.

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Brinkman, Heinicke, Lee, Nolan and Oka

6. Presentation and discussion regarding Prop A. mandated training concerning the role of a City 
and County of San Francisco Board or Commission, the role of an individual Director, the role 
and responsibilities of the SFMTA Board and governance structure. (Explanatory documents 
include a slide presentation.) 

Julia Friedlander, Deputy City Attorney, presented the staff report. 

Chairman Nolan asked the Board Secretary to prepare a calendar item that would change the start 
time of SFMTA Board meetings from 12 noon to 1 pm. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Howard Nelson discussed the problems with the Clipper Card at light rail stations and on the 
rubber-tire fleet. He suggested that the SFMTA should make its current system as efficient as 
possible before moving on to other things.. 

Herbert Weiner stated that he sees signs for bicyclists that say "Share the Streets" but pedestrians 
have problems sharing the streets at intersections. He has seen cyclists pulled off of their bikes 
by irate pedestrians. The SFMTA has a responsibility to get on the problem. Pedestrians have 
rights too. 

Dorian Maxwell stated that the Clipper Card needs a faster process for giving people their money 
when they put it on the card. People who board buses say they put money on the card but they 
can't access it. The Board needs to ride with the operators once a month and experience what's 
going on out there. There was a bus on Sunday that lost braking and acceleration. The system 
broke down and he couldn't stop the bus. 

Following public comment Board members discussed the desire for more in depth presentations 
from staff regarding items such as budget and finance, the TEP, taxi regulation, SFpark, vehicle 
replacement and long range transportation planning. 

7. Presentation and discussion regarding the SFMTA's FY10 Year End Report and 2008-2012 
Strategic Plan. (Explanatory documents include a slide presentation.) 

Executive Director/CEO Nathaniel Ford presented the report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 



Rafael Cabrera, TWU Local 250-A, stated that it's hard not to look back at what happened in 
2005 when the SFMTA had a fiscal emergency. In 2007, voters approved Prop A to add service, 
and said they wanted first class transit. The 22 line is supposed to be a trolley bus line ,but motor 
coaches are on the line. That tells us that we need to fix the fleet now. Props. E and A gave the 
SIM I A the opportunity lo seek additional resources. Let's focus on the "Transit First" policy. 

Herbert Weiner stated that the groups that are favored by the SFMTA aren't representative of the 
stakeholders. The CAC is a rubber stamp. Most riders are dissatisfied. He expressed concern 
that residents in the eastern sector of the city are being neglected as are retirees. There is a 
congestion problem and parking needs to be addressed. He also questioned how to define 
contributions that result in operators dying at the wheel because they can't afford to retire. The 
SFMTA has some of the highest paid managers in the city. The TEP was disastrous. 

Howard Nelson stated that he was speaking on behalf of the 60-foot fleet, aging baby boomers, 
students and disabled patrons. Low boarding coaches would be beneficial and would speed up 
the boarding process. The Board should move aggressively as costs are up but low floor coaches 
will save time and money. 

James Bryant, SEIU 1021 discussed problems with the fare gates in the Metro. This past year has 
been the most difficult. Members would love to work with the SFMTA. They listen to the 
public and deal with angry customers. The only way to address negative press is to address the 
problems. 

Following discussion by the Board regarding priorities, Chairman Nolan referred the SFMTA's 
Strategic Plan to the Policy and Governance Committee. 

8. Discussion and vote pursuant to Administrative Code Section 67.10(d) as to whether to 
conduct a closed session and invoke the attorney-client privilege. 

On motion to invoke the attorney-client privilege: unanimously approved.

hearing regarding recent service interruptions in the subway. 

In response to a comment by Director Brinkman, Exec. Director/CEO Ford stated that he would provide

1 



PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Mark Gruberg inquired as to why King Street couldn't be used for a taxi stand. Dropping off people with 
disabilities on Second or Third Streets leaves them with a long walk. Regarding peak time taxis, he stated 
that the need for a hearing is clearly stated in the rules. If more permits are to be issued, there must be a 
hearing. He also discussed the program to add 50-100 electric vehicles to be used as taxis. The program is 
apparently completely decided, but only Yellow Cab is involved. There has been no public process about it. 

7. Executive Director's Report (For discussion only) 

-Special Recognition Award 
-Ongoing Activities 

Executive Director/CEO Ford presented Special Recognition Awards to Glenda Lavigne, transit fare 
inspector, Transit Services and James Flores, transit fare inspector, Transit Services. 

Chairman Nolan asked the Board Secretary to call Item 1 1 . He stated that the Board would return to the ED 
Report following completion of Item 11. 

Exec. Director/CEO Ford and Chief John Murphy discussed how the SFMTA responds to hate crimes 
including how staff is trained. 

Carter Rohan, senior director, Capital Projects and Construction reviewed the status of the automatic fare 
collection project including the installation of new fare gates. 

Exec. Director/CEO Ford, discussed phase two of the Limited Performance Audit initiated by the Board of 
Supervisors and Transportation Authority. This audit will evaluate whether the SFMTA is efficiently and 
effectively managing its capital program. 

8. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 
No report. 

9. Public Comment 

Mark Gruberg discussed the electric vehicle program that was developed without any input. Other companies 
should have been given the opportunity to participate. This program gives a competitive advantage to one 
company over others. These vehicles will impact the decision on the proper number of cabs. 

THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL TRANSPORTATION

RESOLUTION 10-128 









(10.3) Acting as the Parking Authority Commission, supporting the formation of the Civic Center Community 
Benefit District. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution and map.) 

(Bond Yee) 

Item 10.3 was removed from the Consent Calendar at the request of a member of the public. 

PUBLIC COMMENT on Item 10.3: 

Jim Haas requested a verbal presentation. He stated that stakeholders are interested in security. This requires 
a contribution by all property owners. 

RESOLUTION 10-129 

On motion to approve: 

f 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Brinkman, Heinicke, Lee, Nolan and Oka 

(10.4) Recommending that the Board of Supervisors adopt a proposed ordinance to move Police Code Sections 
1078(a), 1 105, 1110, 1 145 to Division I of the Transportation Code, and enacting Transportation Code, 
Division I, Section 3.1(f) and Sections 7.2.5 though 7.2.10 to enact misdemeanor offenses related to the 
operation of motor vehicles for hire and to authorize employees of Taxi Services to enforce specified parking 
regulations related to taxicabs. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution and proposed 
ordinance.) (Debra Johnson) 

Item 10.4 was removed from the Consent Calendar at the request of a member of the public. 

PUBLIC COMMENT on Item 10.4: 

Mark Gruberg stated that there are prohibitions against doormen at hotels who take kickbacks. He expressed 
concern about the section that deals with gifts and gratuities. The legislation would make it a misdemeanor but 
it would have to be proven that money is exchanged for a favor. Most is protection money. This is a standard 
pervasive practice at most cab companies that needs to be dealt with. 

Charles Rathbone stated that they agree with the intent of the legislation but as written it would criminalize the 
dispatch system that brings over 3,000 rides to Luxor Cab. This is a legitimate business relationship. He 
suggested language regarding the exemption of referral services. Vendors such as Cabulous are illegal dispatch 
companies and they should play by the same rules and restrictions. 

Item 10.4 was continued to a future meeting. 

(10.5) Authorizing the Executive Director/CEO to advertise a Request for Proposals for Contract No. CS-163, 
Brokerage Services for an Owner Controlled Insurance Program for the Central Subway Project, to evaluate

fees commensurate to final value of insurance coverage procured, total costs not to exceed $6,800,000 and 
for a term not to exceed ten years. (Explanatory documents include a staff report, resolution, contract and 
financial plan.) (Carter Rohan) 

RESOLUTION 10-131 

Item 10.6 was removed from the agenda at the request of a member of the Board of Directors. Director 
Rohan responded to Director Heinicke's inquiry regarding the cost of the program. 

On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Brinkman, Heinicke, Lee, Nolan and Oka 

(10.7) Authorizing the Executive Director/CEO to execute Contract No. 1242, 5 Fulton Ductbank 
Construction, to build and maintain the fixed guide way, with Con-Quest/Abbett Electric, in an amount not to

Wu, senior administrative analyst, from the Transit Services division and Joe Crimoli, Mary 
Donovan and Reggie Smith, Employee Wellness, Administration, Taxis and Accessible Services 
Division.

Following closed session, the Board returned to the Executive Director's Report. 

John Haley, director, Transit Services, presented an overview of subway service. 

Virginia Harmon, manager, Equal Opportunity Office, presented an overview of incidents based 
on protected classes. 

8. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 

Daniel Murphy, chairman, Citizen's Advisory Council, presented the report. 

9. Taxi Advisory Council Report 

Chris Sweiss, chairman, Taxi Advisory Council, presented the report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Barry Taranto stated that Mr. Sweiss has done a great job as the elected chair of the Taxi 
Advisory Council. The make up of the TAC is wonderful. Mr. Taranto expressed concern 
regarding providing the TAC with adequate feedback and their process for taking public 
comment. He is also concerned that the industry is seen as a cash cow rather than focusing on 
how to make it better for passengers and drivers. 

Chairman Nolan requested feedback regarding the temporary taxi stand at AT&T Park. 

10. Public Comment 

Bob Planthold stated that nothing has happened to a liability issue regarding buses that lack pull 
cords across the seats where seniors and people with disabilities sit. This has been reported in 
the past but it continues to happen. It only requires a simple visual inspection. It doesn't require 
a major purchase. 

Charles Rathbone expressed appreciation for the temporary cab stand at the ballpark and urged 
the SFMTA to make the stand permanent. The Taxi Services division has had to cancel classes 
for new drivers. While there is no immediate crisis, things can change quickly. 



Barry Taranto expressed hope that Director Brinkman learns how drivers make money. The 
industry is semi-independent. Taxi drivers aren't employed by the city. A ride on the 9 San Bruno 
bus was traumatic because of how the bus driver treated people. Bus drivers need to ensure that 
everyone pays their fair share. The cab stand at Third and King should be permanent. He expressed 
concern regarding representation from staff at an ISCOTT meeting. 

Mark Gruberg stated that millions of dollars are being funded through the MTC for an electric taxi 
project. This project was put forward by private companies and seems to sidestep the regulatory 
process. The SFMTA has had no input into it. This could put 50-75 more cabs on the streets. The 
person involved in the city's clean air program who likely had a hand in this is now working for the 
private company that is promoting this deal. Credit card processing rules are highly unfavorable to 
drivers. Drivers have to pay a five percent processing fee and yet the advertising revenue doesn't go 
to them. 90 percent goes to cab companies and ten percent goes to a drivers' fund. 

THE FOLLOWING MATTERS BEFORE THE SAN FRANCISCO MUNICIPAL 
TRANSPORTATION AGENCY BOARD OF DIRECTORS ARE RECOMMENDED FOR 
ACTION AS STATED BY THE SFMTA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR/CEO OR CITY ATTORNEY 
WHERE APPLICABLE. EXPLANATORY DOCUMENTS FOR ALL CALENDAR ITEMS ARE 
AVAILABLE FOR REVIEW AT 1 SOUTH VAN NESS AVE. 7 th FLOOR. 

CONSENT CALENDAR 

1 1 . All matters listed hereunder constitute a Consent Calendar, are considered to be routine by 
the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency Board of Directors and will be acted upon 
by a single vote. There will be no separate discussion of these items unless a member of the 
Board of Directors or the public so requests, in which event the matter shall be removed from the 
Consent Calendar and considered as a separate item. 

(11.1) Requesting the Controller to allot funds and to draw warrants against such funds available 
or will be available in payment of the following claims against the SFMTA: 

A. Anne Thayer vs. CCSF, Superior Ct, #444325 filed on 8/23/05 for $1,000.00 

B. Moon Kim vs. CCSF, Superior Ct., #CGC09495285 filed on 12/17/09 for $30,000 

RESOLUTION 10-136 

(1 1 .2) Approving the following traffic modifications: 

A. ESTABLISH - TOW- A WAY NO STOPPING ANYTIME - Loomis Street, west side, from 
Waterloo Street to 20 feet northerly; Loomis Street, west side, from Waterloo Street to 10 
feet southerly; and Loomis Street, east side, from 26 feet south of Waterloo Street to 191

(Bond Yee) 



RESOLUTION 10-137 

(1 1.3) Approving amendments to Division II of the San Francisco Transportation Code to change the 
territorial limits included in Parking Meter Zone Three, establish Parking Meter Zone Five, and set 
applicable motorcycle parking meter rates within Parking Meter Zone Five. (Explanatory documents 
include a staff report, resolution and Transportation Code) (Terrie Williams) 

RESOLUTION 10-138 

(11.4) Approving amendments to Articles 300 and 500 of the Transportation Code, to impose 
restrictions for commercial passenger vehicles on certain street segments, fix penalties for violation 
of those restrictions, and make a technical correction and clarification. (Explanatory documents 
include a staff report, resolution and Transportation Code.) (Bond Yee) 

Item 1 1 .4 was severed from the Consent Calendar at the request of a member of the public. 

PUBLIC COMMENT on Item 1 1.4: 

Barry Taranto stated this should be a separate item on the agenda as it has created a lot of news in the 
past and is a big deal. He wondered if taxi issues are involved and how this impacts commercial 
passenger vehicles. There are an increasing number of company buses that drive on certain streets. 

RESOLUTION 10-139 

On motion to approve the Consent Calendar (Item 1 1 .4 severed): 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Brinkman, Heinicke, Lee, Nolan and Oka 

REGULAR CALENDAR 

12. Presentation and discussion regarding the FY1 1 First Quarter Financial Report. (Explanatory 
documents include a slide presentation.) (Terrie Williams) 

Terrie Williams, acting chief financial officer, presented the report. 

Director Brinkman requested that staff examine the idea of graduated fines in a calendar year. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Barry Taranto said that there are huge red flags. The public deserves to know what happened to 
Sonali Bose. There is a huge amount of money from medallion sales that is going into the SFMTA's 
general fund. It's false to say that the SFMTA is under budget. Taxis are budgeted differently. 
PCO's shouldn't be removed from their beats for special service. The SFMTA should bill at the 
overtime rate for those events. PCO's should be part of Bond Yee's division. 



Forrest Schmidt stated that the Board should remember the rich when considering new sources of 
revenue. The rest of us are poor and struggling. PCO's have expressed concern that they're being 
over dispatched to poor neighborhoods which leads to increased conflict with their neighbors. The 
more access that the wealthy have to free tickets means they don't pay tickets. The SFMTA should 
find ways to get money from people who have it to subsidize public transit. Bus drivers are being 
demonized for a problem that they didn't create. 

13. Authorizing the Executive Director/CEO to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding with 
the 3 1 1 Call Center, Board of Supervisors, Building Inspection, Business and Economic 
Development, Central Shops, City Attorney's Office, City Planning, Civil Service, Controller's 
Office, District Attorney's Office, Environment, Human Resources, Human Rights, Labor Standards 
Enforcement, Mayor's Office, Police, Public Health, Public Works, Public Utilities, Purchasing, 
Real Estate, Risk Manager, Social Services, Tax Collector and Technology. (Explanatory documents 
include a staff report, resolution and MOUs.) (Terrie Williams) 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Barry Taranto stated that there is an MOU between Taxi Services and the SFPD regarding how to do 
enforcement. He questioned whether it has been enforced and suggested it was being ignored or being 
enforced in a different way. He questioned what actions could be taken if a department doesn't 
cooperate. There should be an agreement about what to do and how to enforce laws already on the 
books. 

RESOLUTION 10-140 

On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Brinkman, Heinicke, Lee, Nolan and Oka 

14. Presentation and discussion regarding the status of the Van Ness and Geary Bus Rapid Transit 
Projects. (Explanatory documents include a slide presentation.) (Bond Yee) 

Tim Papandreou, deputy director, Sustainable Streets, presented the staff report. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Tilly Chang, San Francisco Transportation Authority, expressed appreciation for the opportunity to 
present the cooperative work on these pioneering efforts. This is an opportunity to transform public 
transit. There is much enthusiasm and excitement around the project. The region has been 
supportive. Van Ness BRT has earned one of two slots in the FTA pipeline for regional priority. 

15. Discussion and vote pursuant to Administrative Code Section 67.10(d) as to whether to 
conduct a closed session and invoke the attorney-client privilege.

No report. 

9. Public Comment 

Herbert Weiner compared the SFMTA to a 1932 film entitled "The Hurricane Express" and 
presented the first annual wrecker award and a DVD of the film to Exec. Director Ford. The 
award was presented by "Under the Wheels", an organization of stakeholders. 

Rory Hodgson stated that parking tickets are issued liberally and are very hard to fight. He urged 
the SFMTA to lower its budget rather than place the burden on the public. 

Charles Rathbone expressed concern regarding the lack of new driver training and urged the 
SFMTA to restore the training classes. 

Dave Schneider stated that there is a petition circulating that would combine taxi driver 
protection and keep regular dispatch systems in cabs but also include a real-time GPS system in 
cabs. The item should be calendared for public hearing to consider safety. 

Roxanne Caldera stated that they've been working to get Muni to hire locally for projects using 
federal dollars. Sup. Avalos has introduced legislation that would mandate local hiring. She 
would like to discuss Mr. Ford's concerns with him. The good faith approach to local hiring has 
failed. Local hiring is at an all time low with only 20% of residents working on projects. She 
asked the Board to support the Avalos legislation. 

Nathan Dwiri stated that there are 100 people waiting to get a job but there's a hang up at the 
SFMTA. 

Director Heinicke requested that staff work on addressing the issue raised by Mr. Dwiri.

Vice Chairman Lee suggested that the Board reexamine the employee parking policy and asked 
that it be scheduled for discussion at a Policy and Governance Committee meeting. 



Director Heinicke asked about the status of the peak time taxis. Director Oka added that he 
would like the Board to look at the number of cabs that are needed to take care of service issues. 

7. Executive Director's Report (For discussion only) 

-Special Recognition Award 
-Ongoing Activities 

Exec. Director/CEO Ford presented Special Recognition certificates to Suo Fong, conductor, 
Cable Car Division, Transit Services; Jose Mendoza, transit operator, Green Division, Transit 
Services, and Drew Howard, office manager, Capital Controls/Project Relations, Capital 
Programs and Construction. 

Mr. Ford also discussed the California Street Cable Car project. 

8. Citizens' Advisory Council Report 
No report. 

9. Public Comment 

Charles Rathbone stated that Luxor is preparing their annual dispatch report. Luxor could handle 
an additional 50,000 calls per month if they had more cabs. 

Dave Schneider provided an update on cab driver security and passenger services. He is 
circulating a petition regarding phasing in hybrid cars. The industry wants to have an integrated, 
centralized dispatch in addition to what some companies already have. One year ago, a cab 
driver was stabbed and the other day, another driver was assaulted but there is no appreciation of 
it. No bulletins are issued. Nothing happens. This has to be addressed. There is a law that will 
go into effect in January that will prohibit the retention of certain data collected in a cab. This 
law needs to be reconsidered. 

Barry Taranto expressed concern that only two minutes are provided for public comment. This 
shuts the door on us and sends a message that the Board doesn't want to hear from the public. 
The former Taxi Commission held Public Convenience and Necessity hearings that provided 
information to the public and where the Commission got feedback. He stated that he has heard 
that the Taxi Division is going with anecdotal evidence rather than getting statistical data which 
bypasses procedure and due process. Putting more cabs on the street may not solve the problem. 

Howard Strassner stated that he sent a letter regarding how to improve service on the 38-Geary. 
The SFMTA has to take many steps to improve a route such as designing bus bulbs for low floor 
buses and getting cars out of the transit only lane. Transit advocates are studying ways to 
improve service. His next letter will be about how to improve the 30-Stockton. 



Mark Ciruberg applauded Dave Schneider's initiative to enhance safety for taxi drivers. 
Advances in technology have made it simpler to have an integrated dispatch system. There needs 
to be guidelines on the use of visual and audio data. Cameras are for the protection of drivers 
and passengers but there are also privacy rights. He objected to the industry meeting that was 
called for the same time as the Board meeting. 

1 lerbert Weiner stated that he takes issue with the policy of placing buses and bicycles over 
motorists. There should be a balanced approach including pedestrians. The problem with traffic 
congestion has not been addressed nor has parking. Eliminating bus stops and shortening runs 
will make it harder for people with handicaps. 

Peter Witt stated that he has delivered over 12,000 customer responses to the taxi survey 
annually for the last 13 years. He read the survey form to the Board and provided a blank 
customer survey form to the Board and asked that the form be entered into the minutes. He 
questioned why nobody finds the taxi data relevant and added that when it comes to world class 
service, you should look at the top and bottom lights. Mr. Ford, the Chairman, the Board, and 
staff are responsible for service delivered to San Francisco. 

Rafael Cabrera thanked the Board for going to the divisions and for talking with the operators 
about their job. He expressed hope that the Board will listen to their concerns and do the right 
thing.

Item 10.2 I and N were removed from the Consent Calendar at the request of a member of the 
public. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Barry Taranto spoke about Item 10.2 I and N. Regarding I, he is representing a friend who has a 
nightclub at the bottom of the hill. There is a limited amount of street parking on Connecticut so 
eliminate parking is absurd and requires a good explanation. Regarding 10.2 N, this location is 
under the freeway. Mr. Taranto expressed concern regarding why parking meters are being put 
in a location where there are no businesses. It doesn't make sense to switch from one side of the 
street to the other. 

RESOLUTION 10-152 

On motion to approve Item 10.2 I and N: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Brinkman, Heinicke, Lee, Nolan and Oka 

(10.3) Authorizing the Executive Director to execute grant agreements for the Fiscal Year 09/10 
Bicycle Facility Program to fund three Bicycle Facilities Projects: $84,000 for bicycle parking;

Highway. (Explanatory documents include a staff report and resolution.) (Sonali Bose) 

RESOLUTION 10-153 

(10.4) Authorizing the Executive Director/CEO to accept and expend funding in the amount of 
$6,988,000 for the Bay Area Electric Vehicle Taxi Corridor Project under the federal Surface 
Transportation Program and/or the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement 
program. (Explanatory documents include a staff report and resolution.) (Sonali Bose) 

Item 10.4 was removed from the Consent Calendar at the request of members of the public. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 

Charles Rathbone stated that this is an innovative and exciting program that should go forward 
however the program is short on details and Luxor is interested in participating. 



Mark Gruberg stated that the application lists Yellow Cab. He supports innovation but feels this 
is not well conceived. We don't know about the economic viability of neighborhood cabs. This 
could make it difficult to evaluate the idea of electric vehicles and neighborhood cabs. This went 
to the MTC before the industry was informed. He questioned the source of funding for the 
$900,000 expenditure. 

Barry Taranto stated that this is a major issue and project. There should be a presentation on the 
item so everyone will know what this project is about. He stated that he didn't know that Yellow 
Cab is only the company participating. That seems like favoritism. 

Christiane Hayashi, deputy director, Taxi Services, discussed the grant. 

On motion to amend the resolution to add language to clarify the amount of money that the 
SFMTA would be providing: 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Brinkman, Heinicke, Lee, Nolan and Oka

(10. 1 1) Establishing an SFMTA Board of Directors and Parking Authority Commission meeting 
schedule for 201 1. (Explanatory documents include a staff report and resolution.) (Roberta Boomer) 

RESOLUTION 10-161 

On motion to approve the Consent Calendar (Items 10.2 I and N and 10.4 severed): 

ADOPTED: AYES - Beach, Brinkman, Heinicke, Lee, Nolan and Oka 

REGULAR CALENDAR 

1 1 . Recommending that the Board of Supervisors amend Transportation Code, Division I, by 
amending Section 7.2.30 (c) and 7.2.30 (d), to establish a one-hour maximum parking time limit 
for all broken or inoperable parking meters under the jurisdiction of the SFMTA. (Explanatory 
documents include a staff report, resolution and amendment.) (Sonali Bose) 

Items 1 1 and 12 were called together. 

PUBLIC COMMENT: 






Barry Taranto stated that a lot of meters have a limit of two hours. There will be protests because 
people won't know this. It is only fair to go with the maximum amount of time for the meter. 

Howard Strassner stated that they want to support this but there's so much more to be done. This 
will be an enforcement issue. Regarding Item 12, it speaks to Don Shoup's theory. The one hour 
rate shouldn't be less than half of the adult cash fare for Muni. He suggested that the SFMTA 
not bother with changing neighborhood rates. 

Herbert Weiner expressed concern about the parking rate. He takes public transit and uses his 
car sparingly. This is unfair to drivers. The SFMTA Board is trying to get money wherever it 
can find it. This is a pattern of extortion and less service. There has been a dramatic reduction in 
service since Mr. Ford started. This will force people onto a public transit system that is highly 
unworkable. 

On motion to approve: 

ADOPTED: AYES -Brinkman, Heinicke and Nolan 

NAYES - Beach, Lee and Oka 

The motion failed adoption 

Chairman Nolan asked that the matter be revised and presented to the Policy and Governance 
Committee. 

12. Approving the amendment to Division II of the San Francisco Transportation Code to set the 
parking meter rate range in Parking Meter Zone Five (SFpark Pilot Areas) between $0.25 and
